About me

I am now a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Sussex having completed my PhD supervised by Jon Warren, Roger Tribe and Oleg Zaboronski.

Research Interests

My research interests are in probability theory and include coalescing and annihilating Brownian motions, random matrix theory and the KPZ universality class.


(with J. Warren) Point-to-line last passage percolation and the invariant measure of a system of reflecting Brownian motions. Probability Theory and Related Fields.

(with R. Tribe and O. Zaboronski) Sharp asymptotics for Fredholm Pfaffians related to interacting particle systems and random matrices. Electronic Journal of Probability.
