Robert Griffiths

Research Overview

My research is in Stochastic process models of evolution in Population Genetics, particularly in random trees and diffusion processes. Generally I have an interest in Stochastic processes, particularly in spectral expansions of transition functions. Latest research is on long range random walks on a hypercube with Andrea Collevecchio.
