Institut für Mathematik, Universität Zürich

my supervisor is Valentin Féray, assistant professor at the university of Zurich; check his webpage!

**Research topics:**

- algebraic combinatorics, with regards to combinatorics applied to representation theory (or representation theory applied to combinatorics?): partitions, Young diagrams, Jucys-Murphy elements;
- symmetric group and upper unitriangular group;
- asymptotic combinatorics, that is, the study of the behaviour of sets of discrete objects depending on a positive integer, once endowed with a suitable probability.
