Scientific interests  a brief descriptionMy research field is probability theory, with focus on high dimensional phenomena. I am particularly interested in concentration inequalities and their applications. Other areas I have been working on are Random Matrix Theory, Markov chains, quantum information, the theory of $U$statistics and branching particle systems. Coauthors
