# Ayah Almousa

I am on the job market.

I am a President's Postdoctoral Fellow in Mathematics at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. I work primarily with Christine Berkesch and Vic Reiner on questions in algebra and combinatorics.

I received my PhD in Mathematics at Cornell University under the direction of Irena Peeva. Before that, I received my B.S. in Physics and Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

I spent the first seven months of 2019 visiting the University of Bergen in Norway working with Gunnar Fløystad. Many of the pictures on my website were taken during that time.
