Dr Partha Dey
Welcome to my homepage. I am a Harrison Early-career Assistant Professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Warwick.
My research lies in the field of Probability Theory and its interactions with models of statistical physics. In particular I am interested in First and Last passage percolation, Random growth models, Stein's method, Concentration inequalities, Spin glasses, Random Graphs and Random Matrices.
I obtained my Ph.D. in Statistics in 2010 from UC Berkeley under the supervision of Sourav Chatterjee and Steve Evans. I was a Courant Instructor/Simons Fellow in the Department of Mathematics at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences, NYU in 2010-2013. Before that, I did my undergraduate and masters from Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata with specialization in Mathematical Statistics and Probability.
