I am an Associate Professor at Department of Mathematics, University of Virginia. I got my PhD in 2010 in Moscow with Grigori Olshanski, and in 2011-2014 I was a postdoc at Northeastern University.

Research interests • (papers) • (CV)

Teaching • (all)

In Spring 2022, I teach three sections of MATH 3100 Introduction to Probability.

Important: MATH 3100 classes and office hours are online until February 4, 2022

Class times: MWF 10:00am-10:50pm; 11:00am-11:50am; 12:00pm-12:50pm, in Monroe 118. Office hours: MW 2:30PM-3:30PM, and by appointment. Automatically schedule an office hours appointment here.
