I am interested in statistical inference problems in complex systems, in particular on random graphs and in genomics. I am also interested more broadly in applied probability, combinatorial statistics, information theory, control theory, interacting particle systems, and voting.
This past summer I taught a minicourse on statistical network analysis at University of Washington and at the XX Brazilian School of Probability.
