Huy Tuan Pham

I am a Second year PhD student in the Department of Mathematics at Stanford University. I am very fortunate to be advised by Professor Jacob Fox. I previously obtained my BS in Mathematics and MS in Statistics with Honors and Distinction from Stanford University, and a Master of Advanced Study in Mathematics with Distinction from the University of Cambridge.

Research Interests

Additive combinatorics, probabilistic methods in combinatorics, extremal combinatorics, probability theory, theoretical computer science, deep learning.
