I am a Bing Postdoctoral Instructor in the math department at UT Austin working with Joe Kileel. Previously, I was a postdoc of Bernd Sturmfels in the nonlinear algebra group at the Max Planck Institute in Leipzig, Germany. I completed my PhD in May of 2022 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison advised by Jose Rodriguez and Bernie Lesieutre. Prior to his retirement, I also worked with Nigel Boston.
My research interests are in applied algebra and convex geometry. Specifically, using techniques from algebraic geometry to solve problems arising in power engineering, statistics and optimization. An up-to-date version of my publications are given here.
I am co-organizing a minisymposium on "Data and certificates in in algebra and geometry" at the SIAM conference on applied algebraic geometry with Tobias Boege
I recently was invited to attend the "Rising Stars in Computational and Data Sciences" conference held at UT Austin
I am giving a lecture at the JMM short course "Polynomial Systems, Homotopy Continuation and Applications"
Along with Stefano Mereta, I organize the MPI Nonlinear Algebra Seminar. Feel free to reach out regarding seminar information!
I am giving a talk at the MPI/Magdeburg Seminar Day. Supplementary problems for the 'meet the math' session can be found here.
Along with Pierpaola Santarsiero, Sachi Hashimoto and Stefano Mereta I am organizing viewing events surrounding the virtual ICM meeting in July. If you are local in Leipzig, please reach out for more information!
My thesis work was awarded the Excellence in Mathematical Research Award and John A. Nohel Prize for an outstanding thesis in applied math!
Here is a link of a talk I gave on work using algebraic geometry to solve a problem in statistics.
