Welcome to my personal webpage

Since September 2019, I have been Courant Instructor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences (NYU).

Previously, I did my PhD in the LPSM at Sorbonne Université, under the supervision of Zhan Shi, mainly on the branching Brownian motion. I was also simultaneously teaching assistant in the Mathematics Department of the ENS Paris.

Besides branching Brownian motion and branching random walk, my research interests include other log-correlated fields, such as two-dimensional Gaussian free field or characteristic polynomials of random matrices. I have also studied the Derrida-Retaux model, which is a hierarchical renormalization model.
