I am currently in my second 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.

Research Interests:

I am primarily interested in random walks on random media, particularly those relating to random trees and random maps. So far, I have mainly been researching these using resistance growth techniques, applied specifically to the case of diffusions on stable looptrees. We now hope to use this as a basis to study random walks on more complicated random objects.

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 special class of polynomials.

As an undergraduate I also completed a summer research project jointly with Igor Spasojevic on collisions of random walks, supervised by Dr. Perla Sousi. We proved some partial results on robustness of the infinite collision property on recurrent graphs.

I am also starting to work on random loop soup models and their universality properties.
