Since 2016 I have been a PhD student in the group of László Erdős at the Institute of Science and Technology Austria. My research interests are probability theory and mathematical physics with a focus on random matrices. I am also interested in universal properties of complex systems and the mathematically rigorous study of machine learning algorithms.
