square_blue.pngAbout me

I am currently a tenure-track assistant professor in mathematics at the University of Innsbruck (Austria), Department of Mathematics. Prior to that, I was assistant professor (non tenure-track) at Graz University of Technology (Austria) and a visiting assistant professor at Cornell University, USA. I have recently (February 2020) got the Habilitation (venia docendi) in Mathematics at TU Graz, at the same university where I have received my PhD in December 2010, under the supervision of Wolfgang Woess.

square_blue.pngResearch Interests

My research deals mostly with the interplay between structural and geometrical properties of infinite graphs and the behavior of random walks and of rotor-router walks (which are derandomized versions of random walks) on these graphs. I am investigating the differences and similarities of these two walks (random walk and rotor-router walk) in relation to the underlying graph structure, which may be random or not.
I am also working on internal aggregation models (IDLA, rotor-router aggregation, sandpile models) on fractal graphs and other state spaces. Moreover, I also have some interests in zig-zag products of graphs, (geometric) boundaries of random walks. More details, just look at my publications.
