I am a postdoctoral fellow with Michel Benaïm at Université de Neuchâtel. During the academic year 2018/19, I am supported under Michel Benaïm's SNF grant 200021 - 175728. Before September 2018, I was supervised by Thomas Mountford at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), and by Konstantin Khanin at the University of Toronto. I received my Ph.D. from the Georgia Institute of Technology. My Ph.D. advisor was Yuri Bakhtin .


I am not teaching during the academic year 2018/19. In recent semesters, I taught the following courses at EPFL and at the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM):

  • Spring 2018: Applied Stochastic Processes (EPFL)
  • Winter 2017: MAT311 Partial Differential Equations (UTM)
  • Fall 2016: MAT244 Differential Equations (UTM)


My research interests lie in probability, dynamical systems and ergodic theory. In particular, I have been working on piecewise deterministic Markov processes (PDMP), and on directed polymers in a random environment.
