Eleanor Archer


I am currently in my third year of the MASDOC programme, supervised by Dr. David Croydon and Dr. Daniel Ueltschi. Before coming to Warwick, I completed my BA and MMath at King’s College, Cambridge.

I am primarily interested in random walks on random media, particularly those relating to random trees and random maps.

In my first year at Warwick I also worked on a research study group on stochastic integrable systems with George Vasdekis and Stephen Pidgeon, supervised by Prof. Nikos Zygouras and Dr. Yacine Barhoumi. We studied KPZ properties of domino growth models using bijections between domino configurations and a class of polynomials. Prior to that, I completed an undergraduate project jointly with Igor Spasojevic on collisions of random walks, supervised by Dr. Perla Sousi.

I am also interested in random permutations, and their applications to statistical physics.
