Personal profile

Research interests

My research is mostly focused on the study of random trees, and more generally on branching processes, reinforced processes, and Pólya urns. My research is often motivated by application to other scientific areas such as computer science or physics.

For example, since my PhD, I have been interested in applying probabilistic results about random trees to the satsifiability problem. More recently, I have been working on the Bianconi and Barabási model for complex networks and proving results about the size of the largest hub in these networks. Another big part of my current research, since my collaboration with Jean-François Marckert, is about developping the theory of Pólya urns with infinitely-many colours.

Although these interests may seem very diverse, all of them involve the study of random trees such as the  random recursive tree, the random binary search tree, and the preferential attachment tree.
