I am interested in probability and combinatorics, including randomized algorithms, random graphs and random tree, in particular:

I also like programming and using computer to experiment, prove, and teach mathematics.

Occasionally I play with special functions.

You can find all my research papers on Zotero (most up-to-date), Google Scholar (slightly delayed), and arXiv.

Here are some of my open source software projects on GitHub.
