Research Activities

I have made random walks around the frontier of probability and group representations. Having the notion of measures as the navigator, my walk often digresses in a random way. I am interested in bridging finite and infinite objects. The latest and biggest concerns of mine are analyzing probabilistic phenomena caused by the actions of huge groups.
