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. More specifically, he is interested in combinatorial aspects of the sandpile model, permutation tableaux, and mathematical aspects of preference voting models.
He is currently looking for PhD students, and has a fully-funded PhD opportunity on the topic "Stochastic variants of the Abelian sandpile model" (details can be found here: https://www.xjtlu.edu.cn/assets/files/admissions/phd-projects/csse/PGRS2012026_Thomas-Selig_SAT.pdf). If you are interested in this project, 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.
