Research Interests

I am interested in applied probability theory, more specifically in interacting particle systems for real world applications. I have worked on scaling limits for models of chemical reaction networks, focusing on the relations between their dynamics and their structure. More recently, I have started to work on scaling limits of statistical learning algorithms seen as interacting particle systems.
