I’m a probabilist mainly interested in random discrete structures, with occasional detours into analysis and combinatorics – hopefully the research-centred content of this blog gives a flavour of what I work on. I studied for a DPhil (called a PhD at most other places) in the Department of Statistics at Oxford, where my supervisors were Christina Goldschmidt and James Martin. I now work with Oren Louidor and others at Technion, in Haifa, Israel, where I’m grateful to be supported by a Cohen-Coleman Fellowship.
The aim of this blog is to provide a place for me to write down the sorts of ideas that seemed interesting at the time, but which otherwise would not be preserved. I’m trying to find a tone of ‘careful non-rigour’ – light on convergence technicalities and more based on intuition where possible.
