Research Interests:

Probability, integrable systems, and stochastic PDEs. I work with Craig Tracy. Link to paper based on dissertation research will be available soon.


Here at UC Davis, I served as Director of the VIGRE Explore Math ARML Program 2012-2013. Since 2013, I have organized a volunteer-based Davis Math Circle. We also organize a math competition program that trains teams to represent Northern California at the annual ARML competition. We have a blog with more information.

I also enjoy helping out with the STEM Cafe program through the Women's Resources and Research Center.

Departmental Service

I have been heavily involved with the math graduate student group known as the Galois Group, serving as President last year.

Tutoring since 2002. Contact me for more info.

Personal Info

Before coming to grad school, I lived in Portland, Morocco, and France. I married my wife Sophia while we were living in Paris. We have a two year old girl.
When I find some time, I enjoy bountiful Northern California by tasting delicious food and drink, hiking, and going to local pub quizzes. I've also recently been enjoying playing with data and programming. I will post some projects soon. I might even upgrade this page from its 1990's look. :-p
