I am a mathematician and statistician working in probability, combinatorics, and group theory with a focus on applications to statistics and scientific computing. A specialty is rates of convergence of Markov chains. I am currently interested in trying to adapt the many mathematical developments to say something useful to practitioners in large real-world simulations.
