  • PhD, University of California, Davis (2010)

My research is in probability and stochastic processes. I am interested in stochastic models on graphs and networks, such as percolation models, interacting particle systems and cellular automata. Areas of application for my research include epidemiology, biology, and statistical mechanics.

David Sivakoff joined the statistics faculty in 2013. He has a joint appointment with the Department of Mathematics where he co-organizes the Combinatorics and Probability Seminar. His research is supported in part by an NSF grant.
