# Xiao Shen

I am a fifth year graduate student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.**I am on the job market this year (graduating in May 2021).**Here is my CV.

My advisor is

**Timo Seppäläinen**.

My research interest is probability theory, and I have been working on corner growth model (exponential last-passage percolation) and first-passage percolation.

**Papers and preprints:**

*The structure of holes in*In progress.

*B(t)*in first-passage percolation.C. Janjigian, W. Lam, X. Shen.

*Tail bounds for the averaged empirical distribution on a geodesic in first-passage percolation.*Preprint, 2020. arXiv:2010.08072

T. Seppäläinen, X. Shen.

*Coalescence estimates for the corner growth model with exponential weights.*Electron. J. Probab. 25: page 85-116, 2020.

I organize the SIAM Chapter seminar at UW-Madison, if you would like to give a talk (normally on Wednesday afternoon), send me an email.
