On 1 February, Serte Donderwinkel joined the team as an assistant professor in probability theory. After her BSc in Mathematics at the University of Groningen, she moved to the UK, where she completed a master's at the University of Cambridge and a PhD at the University of Oxford. She then did a short postdoc at McGill University, before returning to Groningen. Her research mostly focuses on the study of random trees and graphs. The common denominator of her projects is that they involve creative sampling procedures that, combined with tools from (stochastic) analysis, allow her to study the large-scale structure of the random object. At CogniGron, she will aim to put her theoretical background to use to improve the understanding of phenomena observed in real-world networks, such as phase transitions and self-organised criticality.

Welcome to the team, Serte!
