## 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 am interested in mathematics and mathematical models explaining real-world phenomena, in particular probability theory and applied probability. I like to think about voting, networks, interacting particle systems, game theory, and mathematical biology. [ CV (as of April, 2014) | Google Scholar profile ] Email: racz at stat.berkeley.edu |
