Role: Lecturer in Statistics


I obtained my PhD from the Scuola Normale Superiore of Pisa in 2015, having worked on my thesis mostly in Paris under the supervision of Prof. Nicolas Curien. I subsequently held temporary postdoctoral positions at the Université Paris Sud and at the University of Bath, and I am now a Florence Nightingale fellow at the Department of Statistics in Oxford.

Research interests

My research interests lie at the intersection between Probability and Combinatorics. I work with large random combinatorial structures, and in particular I am interested in random trees, random planar maps, their local and scaling limits, and mixing time problems.


I teach courses related to Probability and Statistics. This year I will teach Prelims Probability, Statistics and Data Analysis, and Part A Integration.
