I am currently an NSF post doc at Stanford University. I work in the field of probability, primarily on the quantitive analysis of Markov chains. Please see the research section for my publications and my CV. 
Before coming to Stanford, I completed my studies in the mathematics department at Cornell University. While at Cornell I was working under the direction of Laurent SaloffCoste.
