I am an Associate Professor of Mathematics at Georgia Institute of Technology. My research focuses on probabilistic combinatorics and random discrete structures. I'm particularly interested in random graphs and processes, phase transitions, and combinatorial probability (as well as applications thereof to extremal combinatorics, Ramsey theory, and related areas); see also this older non-technical account.

I completed my PhD at the University of Oxford in 2012 under the supervision of Oliver Riordan. Afterwards I was elected a junior research fellow at Peterhouse College, University of Cambridge.

I received in 2014 the Richard-Rado-Prize (German Mathematical Society), and in 2016 the Dénes König Prize (SIAM).
My research is supported by NSF grant DMS-1703516, a 2018 Sloan Research Fellowship, and a 2020 NSF CAREER award.
