Research Interests: My graduate research has been mostly concentrated on problems in discrete probability theory with a special emphasis on problems related to the theory of mixing times of Markov chains and the cutoff phenomenon. Besides that, I have also worked on particle systems driven by random walks and on dependent percolation.
