### HELLO!

I am an assistant professor at
__Mathematics and Statistics
department at
McGill University__.

EMAIL: elliot.paquette@mcgill.ca

OFFICE: Burnside Hall 925

I
received my Ph.D. from the
Mathematics department at the University
of Washington (2013) from Ioana Dumitriu
__
Prof. Ioana Dumitriu__.
After that I held an NSF
postdoctoral
fellowship
at the Weizmann Institute of Science, in Rehovot, Israel
with
__Prof. Ofer Zeitouni__.
From 2016-2020, I was an assistant professor, tenure track, at Ohio State University.

My research is in probability. Most of my research is in random matrix theory. My first focus is on $\beta$--ensembles, connections to branching processes. My second focus is on high-dimensional optimization, especially in its connections to random matrix theory. I also have work on probability with geometric and topological inspirations.

If you'd like to know more about probability in Montreal. See some of the links below:

I have the pleasure of being the adviser to the following PhD students:
