Research Interests

My research interests lie broadly at the interface of probability, statistics, computer science, and information theory. My work focuses on combinatorial statistics: inference questions on large random discrete structures such as random graphs. These include inferring the past in randomly growing graphs, inferring latent geometry in high-dimensional random geometric graphs, graph matching problems in correlated random graphs, and community detection. I am also interested in, and have worked on, social networks, dynamics on networks, voting, sequence reconstruction, and DNA data storage.
