I am a Reader in Mathematics and Probability in the School of Mathematical Sciences, Queen Mary, University of London.

I teach these courses:

MTH734U-MTHM012-MTH712P, Topics in Probability & Stochastic Processes

MTH 6100, Actuarial Mathematics

I am the Programme Director for GN13, G1N1, and G1N4.

My office is G53 in the Mathematical Sciences building.

My office phone number is 020 7882 5487.

E-mail:
D.S.Stark@qmul.ac.uk

Office Hours: Friday 1:30 - 2:30.
In the first two weeks of the this semester, I will have office hours
Friday 12:30 - 2:30.

My research is in rates of convergence, approximations and asymptotics in probability and combinatorics. Methods include coupling, Poisson approximation, and asymptotic enumerations, while applications include random combinatorial objects, probabilistic number theory, and rate of convergence of Markov chains. I also work on modelling oil production.

Here is a list of my publications/preprints and my c.v. in pdf format.

Students may be interested in this website on careers in math, this online math magazine , including interviews about careers, or the job adverts for mathematicians at Luchsinger Mathematics .

Here is another picture of me.
