**Academic profile:**

August 1998: Ph.D. in Mathematics, at the Department of Mathematics, University of Washington, Seattle, U.S.A. Thesis supervisor: Professor K. Burdzy.

**Current research interests:**

My primary field of interest has been in Probability theory. I have been working with models that arose primarily in either statistical physics or population biology. Initially, the focus was on martingale problems connected with measure-valued branching processes. The tools involved were semi-linear partial differential equations, stochastic

partial differential equations, and stochastic differential equations. I have also worked on models in Statistical Physics (Abelian Sandpile Model) and in Population Biology (Branching-Coalescing systems). Recently I have started studying Brownian motion on real trees and Random walk in Random environments.
