Theodoros Assiotis

MeAbout me

I am a final year PhD student in Mathematics. Before coming to Warwick I completed a BA and MMath (Part III) at the University of Cambridge. A detailed CV, research and teaching statements are available upon request.

Research Interests

I am broadly interested in Probability Theory and Mathematical Physics. More specifically I have done some work in interacting particle systems, random matrix theory, stochastic surface growth and decay processes and the study of dynamics on branching graphs.

Publications and Preprints

  1. Random surface growth and Karlin-McGregor polynomials, available from
  2. A matrix Bougerol identity and the Hua-Pickrell measures, available from
  3. Hua-Pickrell diffusions and Feller processes on the graph of spectra, available from
  4. Intertwinings for general beta Laguerre and Jacobi processes, available from htpps://
  5. Interlacing diffusions, with N. O'Connell and J. Warren, available from htpps://
