Miruna-Ştefana Sorea




Starting with October 2020 I am a postdoctoral researcher at Scuola Internazionale Superiore di Studi Avanzati (SISSA), Trieste, Italy, working with Antonio Lerario, in the groups Geometry and Mathematical Physics and Mathematical Analysis, Modelling and Applications.

From April 2021 I am a member of the Research Center in Mathematics and Applications, which is part of the Faculty of Sciences of the „Lucian Blaga” University of Sibiu, Romania, in the Numerical Methods and Approximation Theory Group.

Between February 2019 and September 2020 I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Nonlinear Algebra Group of Bernd Sturmfels, at Max-Planck-Institut für Mathematik in den Naturwissenschaften, Leipzig, Germany.

My main research interest:

Real Algebraic Geometry and applications

- geometry and topology of real singularities;

- algebraic statistics;

- reaction networks and dynamical systems.

I am a co-organizer of the Geometric Structures Seminar at SISSA, Trieste, Italy - see also here.

I am also interested in: hyperbolic polynomials; combinatorics; applied algebra; applied, computational algebraic geometry; Morse theory; global topology of real polynomial functions; linear spaces of symmetric matrices; maximum likelihood estimation; mathematical models in the life sciences; (symmetric) tensors and their applications; historical mathematical models; numerical algebraic geometry.

A long version of my CV is available upon request.

Todos Cuentan (by Federico Ardila):

  • Axiom 1. Mathematical potential is distributed equally among different groups, irrespective of geographic, demographic, and economic boundaries.

  • Axiom 2. Everyone can have joyful, meaningful, and empowering mathematical experiences.

  • Axiom 3. Mathematics is a powerful, malleable tool that can be shaped and used differently by various communities to serve their needs.

  • Axiom 4. Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.
