Sarai Hernandez-Torres

Technion – Israel Institute of Technology

I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. My hosts are Eviatar Procaccia and Ron Rosenthal.

I recently finished my Ph.D. with the probability group in the Department of Mathematics at the University of British Columbia. I worked under the supervision of Omer Angel and Martin Barlow. Before that, I completed my M.Sc. in Mathematics at UBC under the supervision of Martin Barlow. I got my B.Sc. in Mathematics at the University of Guanajuato / CIMAT in Mexico.

More details on my academic background and activities are available on my CV.


Research interests

My research is on discrete probability. I study stochastic models defined over combinatorial structures, such as random walks, random trees, and competitive growth processes. My work describes the large-scale behavior of discrete random processes and their rigorous connections to continuous models through the scaling limit.

The Continuum Random Tree (aka CRT or Brownian CRT) is my favourite random object.
