I am a Ph.D candidate in mathematics at the Ohio State University, expected on May 2018. I earned my BS. in mathematics at Seoul National University in South Korea.

I work in the fields of probability, combinatorics, dynamical systems, and distributed algorithms.

I am interested in understanding emergent behavior of complex dynamical systems through concrete mathematical models and finding algorithmic applications. I am also branching into developing new methods for network data analysis.

The problems I have studied are related to: pulse-coupled oscillators, cellular automata, interacting particle systems, distributed algorithms, random walks, box-ball system, and parking process.

Here is my CV_lyu. Check out my research_statement_Lyu and teaching_statement_Lyu.

My thesis advisor is David Sivakoff.

My collaborators are Janko Gravner, Lionel Levine, John Pike, Facundo Memoli, Matthew Junge, Eric Foxall, and Michael Damron.
