My research is in the fields of probability, random algorithms, and combinatorics. This includes finding Markov chain mixing times, such as for random walks on the symmetric group
(also known as card shuffles), using tools from representation theory, algebraic combinatorics, and probability.

My thesis under Persi Diaconis titled Random Walks on the Symmetric Group, Likelihood Orders, and Involutions
