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

My co-authors include Louigi Addario-Berry Gidi Amir, Omer Angel, Arvind Ayyer, Riddhipratim Basu, Arthur Blanc-Renaudie, Thierry Bodineau, Ofer Busani, Maria Deijfen, Serte Donderwinkel Rui Dong, Pablo Ferrari, Sergey Foss, Christina Goldschmidt, Patrícia Gonçalves, Ben Hambly, Alexander Holroyd, Mickaël Maazoun, Olya Mandelshtam, Irène Marcovici, Neil O'Connell, Yuval Peres, Leandro Pimentel, Balaji Prabhakar, Balázs Ráth, Utkir Rozikov, Philipp Schmidt, Allan Sly, Dario Spanò, Roman Stasiński, Yuri Suhov, David Wilson, Peter Winkler, Dominic Yeo, and Lingfu Zhang.

You can find my papers here.

Here you can find all sorts of information about probability in Oxford.


Courses I have lectured in Oxford include Prelims Probability, Part A Probability, Part A Linear Programming, Part B Probability, Measure and Martingales, Part B Statistical Lifetime models, Part B Actuarial Science, Part C Probabilistic Combinatorics, and Part C Probability on Graphs and Lattices.


Here is some music to listen to.

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.
