Melanie Matchett Wood is a mathematician. During her fellowship, she will study the probability theory of random groups—in particular questions around their moment problems and universality—focusing on those that arise naturally in number theory, topology, combinatorics, and other areas, with the intention of applying probability to understanding these naturally occurring groups.
