Institut für Mathematik, Universität Zürich

**NEWS - open position:**

- Postdoc position, for two years, starting in Fall 2017 -- see details here.

**My research topics:**

- Central limit theorems for sums of weakly dependent variables: I have recently introduced a new tool, weighted dependency graphs, to obtain this kind of results;
- Deviation probabilities, speed of convergence for combinatorial random variables, via mod-Gaussian convergence;
- Random permutations, patterns and permutons ;
- Algebraic combinatorics, and in particular combinatorics in the symmetric group algebra and its representations (Young diagrams, factorizations in symmetric groups and associated graphs embedded in surfaces, Jucys-Murphy elements) ;
- Symmetric functions, including Jack polynomials, and generalizations (in particular quasi-symmetric functions) ;
- Linear extensions, hook formulas, $P$-partition theory.

**Former postions:**

- 2009-2013: CNRS junior researcher in LaBRI (University Bordeaux 1).
- 2006-2009: PhD student in LIGM (University Paris-Est Marne-La-Vallée).
