Marwa Banna obtained her Ph.D. from Université Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée in September 2015. She then spent a year as a CNRS postdoctoral associate at Télécom ParisTech before joining the free probability group at Saarland University until December 2020.
Marwa Banna's research focuses on high-dimensional probability and free probability theory. Free probability was first introduced in a purely operator algebraic context but ever since its connection to random matrices was revealed, both fields were serving continuously one another. Marwa is mainly interested in the interaction of these fields and their applications.
