Hi! I am a Assistant Professor at Western Michigan University (since 2015).
My research focuses on probabilistic combinatorics and its applications,
especially to extremal combinatorics. In particular I often analyze random
greedy algorithms on discrete structures such as hypergraphs. I got my Ph.D.
in Algorithms, Combinatorics and Optimization from Carnegie Mellon University
in 2013, supervised by Tom Bohman. Then I did a postdoc at the University of
Toronto from 2013-2015, supervised by Mike Molloy. I am grateful to the
Simons Foundation for supporting my research.

Here are my papers.
