# Theodoros Assiotis

**About 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. From October 2018, I will be based at University of Bristol working with Jon Keating on the ERC grant "Log Correlations and Random Matrices".

**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.
