I work at the University of Oxford, where I am based in the Statistics Department and St Hugh's College.


My research is in probability theory, with strong links to statistical physics and theoretical computer science. Research interests include: interacting particle systems; models of random growth and percolation; models of coagulation and fragmentation; performance analysis of queueing and communication networks.

Co-authors include Omer Angel, Riddhipratim Basu, Thierry Bodineau, Maria Deijfen, Rui Dong, Pablo Ferrari, Sergey Foss, Christina Goldschmidt, Patrícia Gonçalves, Ben Hambly, Alexander Holroyd, Irène Marcovici Neil O'Connell, Yuval Peres, Leandro Pimentel, Balaji Prabhakar, Balázs Ráth, Utkir Rozikov, Philipp Schmidt, Dario Spanò, Yuri Suhov, David Wilson, Peter Winkler and Dominic Yeo.

Before coming to Oxford I worked for the CNRS, based in LIAFA in University Paris 7. Previously I was at the Statslab in Cambridge (where I am also a member of St John's College and was "lector" at Jesus College), and in the TREC group at the ENS in Paris.
