Department of Mathematics

Probability and Statistics

Research interests are in random processes in random environment, point processes, applications of probability to fractional calculus and non-local operators, hydrodynamic limits, large deviations and interacting particle systems, rigorous bayesian methods in inverse problems, numerical solution of stochastic partial differential equations, the probabilistic theory of networks, random matrix theory. Areas of applications include mathematical statistical physics, mathematical epidemiology, economics and mathematical finance.
