  2. (with Camille Male) Rigid structures in the universal enveloping traffic space, Preprint. arXiv:2011.05472
  3. Finite-rank perturbations of random band matrices via infinitesimal free probability, Comm. Pure Appl. Math., in press. doi:10.1002/cpa.21924

Teaching: Seminar:

I am organizing the probability seminar at UC San Diego this year (2020-2021): the schedule can be found here. Please send me an email if you would like to be added to the mailing list or if you have a suggestion for a speaker.
