Currently, I am a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Oxford Probability group. My research area are the fields of discrete probability theory and combinatorics. The focus of my PhD were phase transition phenomena in random (hyper-)graphs and their behaviour near and at criticality. Furthermore, I am interested in percolation processes on random (hyper-)graphs and spatial models of real-world networks. More recently, I have been working arithmetic progressions in random sets with a focus on multivariate central limit theorems and moderate deviations.

My Erdős number is 2.
