In this post, I am putting up the bibliography from my thesis. This is essentially a (non-exhaustive) list of the papers I’ve read in the last few years.
In the unlikely event I have a lot of free time in the near future, I will update this with doi links and maybe some notes on the papers that I spent the most time thinking about.
