I am broadly interested in probability theory and its applications. Recently I have been working on problems in Disordered metric geometries with focus on geometry of geodesics in percolation models, Scaling limits and Phase transitions in statistical mechanics, Large deviations and counting problems in sparse non-linear settings, Mixing time of Markov Chains, Random walk on graphs and Random Matrix theory.

Education and past employment.
