Here you can find my publications and what I'm working on, among other things.


I'm doing my PhD with Perla Sousi. My general area of interest is in mixing times of discrete Markov chains. In particular, I have worked on random walks on random environments. I am now looking at the uncovered set of a random walk. Additionally, I have interest in stochastic networks and their applications, for example random access schemes for resource sharing.
