About me

In 2017 I am on maternity leave, and I will not accept any paper for refereeing, reviewing, etc.!

I am currently assistant professor of mathematics at Graz University of Technology, Austria. Prior to that, I was a visiting assistant professor at Cornell University, USA. My research at Cornell was supported by the Erwin-Schrödinger research grant J 3575-N26, from the Austrian Science Fund (FWF).
I received my Ph.D in December 2010, from Graz University of Technology, under the supervision of Wolfgang Woess.

Research 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, Poisson boundaries of random walks.
