ProfileDr. Thomas Selig is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computing, School of Advanced Technology (SAT), at Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), Suzhou, China. He is currently the Programme Director of the MRes Computer Science programme.
He received his PhD in Computer Science from the University of Bordeaux, Bordeaux, France, in December 2014. He followed this with postdoctoral research positions at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK from 2015 to 2018, and at the University of Iceland, Reykjavik, Iceland, from 2018 to 2019.
His research interests are in the fields of enumerative and bijective combinatorics, with some interactions with probability theory. He is particularly interested in the Abelian sandpile model and its stochastic variants. Some topics of interest include sandpile models on graph families, single-source stochastic sandpile models, and links to other objects such as permutation tableaux and the PASEP model, as well as some real-world applications.
He is currently looking for PhD students. If you are interested in any of the topics mentioned above, or more generally in doing a PhD in an area aligned with or closely related to Thomas's research interests, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
