Research Activities

Free probability was discovered in the context of operator algebras to study free groups. By regarding the generators of a free group (algebra) as “independent random variables”, a probabilistic structure appears. Thus free probability comes up. Later, applications to the eigenvalue distributions of random matrices were discovered, and then probabilistic research started to increase. Now free probability is a field that involves operator algebras, probability theory, combinatorics, complex analysis and representation theory. I am working in particular on the aspects combinatorics of set partitions and complex analysis.
