## Miklos Z. RaczI am currently a Statistics PhD student at UC Berkeley, where I am advised by Elchanan Mossel. Previously, I received my diploma in mathematics from the Institute of Mathematics, Budapest University of Technology and Economics, under the supervision of Márton Balázs and Bálint Tóth. I earned an MS in computer science from Berkeley in May 2014.I am interested in mathematics and mathematical models explaining real-world phenomena, in particular probability theory and its applications. I like to think about networks, voting, interacting particle systems, game theory, and mathematical biology. [ CV (as of July, 2014) | Google Scholar profile ] Email: racz at stat.berkeley.edu |
