About me

I'm a PhD student at Eindhoven University of Technology, under the supervision of Rui Castro and Remco van der Hofstad. My research centers around the analysis of inhomogeneous networks and community detection methods. Specifically, I analyze the effects of inhomogeneity on network properties and the difficulty of detecting communities. My interests are: mathematical statistics, community detection, random graphs, and minimax analysis.

I’m also an instructor for the master courses: Statistical learning theory and Applied statistics, as well as the bachelor course: Effectiveness of mathematics.
