I am a researcher with interests in mathematical models involving randomness, particularly models with some element of geometry. Much of my work studies wireless networks with a focus on using tools from probability theory such as point processes.
Following in the footsteps of many academics, I decided to have a dated outdoors photo for my profile picture, demonstrating that I have been outside, at least once, in the real world. The photo was taken in Ecuador.
I have also been to Monte Carlo Land (possibly not its real name).
If the title photo has balloons in it, which is also shown in this post, then it was taken by me early one morning in Cappadocia, Turkey. And I know what you’re wondering: Do the balloons form a Poisson point process? The answer is yes, probably, from that angle, but probably not from above as the balloons would (hopefully) exhibit some form of repulsion.
