I'm a fifth year PhD student in the Department of Mathematics at Stanford University. My PhD advisor is Amir Dembo. Starting January 2012, I will be a postdoctoral fellow at MSRI.

My areas of research are in probability theory and mathematical finance. Currently, the focus of my research is on interacting diffusion processes and their applications in finance. I am also interested in the concentration of measure phenomenon, large deviations, random matrices and rough paths theory.
