I wrote my Ph.D. thesis on various aspects of the structure of random hypergraphs, with particular emphasis on the use of stochastic process methods. I have worked extensively on processes of coagulation (or coalescence) and fragmentation.
More recently, I have been working on scaling limits for random trees and graphs.

the LMH students.
In Cambridge in the distant past, I supervised Part

Markov Chains and Part II Probability and Measure. Supervision
I have acted as a coursework supervisor for the
Applied Statistics I have supervised Part C projects for Mathematics and
Statistics students and masters dissertations for the MSc
in Applied Statistics.
