Qiang Wu


I’m a PhD student of mathematics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. My primary research interest is in probability and statistical physics, mainly on disordered system, such as spin glasses, random polymer models and their interactions with other areas like random matrices etc. I'm also interested in the application of mean field spin glass theory to high dimensional statistics and theoretical computer science. I am advised by Professor Partha S. Dey.
