Ran Huo, Graduate Student

Ran Huo

Doctoral of Philosophy (PhD) Student in Mathematics, 2014-present

 

 I am a mathematician specialized in probability and stochastic processes. In particular, I have been working on voter models on random graphs and am familiar with contact processes, random walks as well as other related interacting particle systems. I am interested in the evolution of the model along with its asymptotic behaviors. A canonical application is the study of competitions among technologies on diverse social networks.

 

Besides, I am currently working on important sampling and specifically KL-divergence. I am curious about optimizing the size of data sets needed in various experiments.

 

Before coming to duke, I worked on directed polymer models in random environments for my undergrad research.
