New Münster Research Fellow: Kilian Raschel

© privat

Dr. Kilian Raschel (CNRS, Université de Tours and Université d'Orléans) joins our Cluster as a Münster Research Fellow. He works on the connections between combinatorics and probability, a principal topic being random walks in cones seen from a combinatorial and a probabilistic point of view. During his stay in Münster from 7 to 31 July 2021 he will join the group of Prof. Dr. Gerold Alsmeyer.

An essential part in his research is the study of generating functions by counting paths. With coauthors, Kilian Raschel has proved two important conjectures in combinatorics, one by Bousquet-Melou-Mishna and one by Gessel. He has also worked on applications in biology, Martin boundary theory for Markov chains, discrete harmonic functions and certain problems in statistical mechanics.
