Role: Fellow and Tutor; Professor of Probability

 

Prof Christina Goldschmidt

Biography

I did my PhD in the Statistical Laboratory at Cambridge with James Norris. I then did postdoctoral work at Paris VI (with Jean Bertoin), Pembroke College, Cambridge (as Stokes Fellow in Mathematics) and Oxford (as an EPSRC Postdoctoral Fellow). I held the position of Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Warwick for two years, before returning to Oxford in September 2011.

Research interests

My research interests lie in probability and include random combinatorial structures (in particular random trees and graphs), combinatorial stochastic processes, coagulation and fragmentation.

Teaching

 I am on leave from teaching until December 2020. I won the University's Teaching Excellence Award in 2013 and 2016.
