Dr Wei Wu

Dr Wei Wu is an Assistant Professor in Statistics at Warwick. Before joining Warwick, he held academic positions at Courant Institute, New York University and at NYU Shanghai. He obtained his PhD and Msc in applied math at Brown University, and his BSc in physics at Fudan University.

He works in probability and statistical mechanics, especially in Gibbs random fields, spin models, spanning trees and percolation.

The Warwick probability seminar is pretty cool.
