I am currently in the job market. Here is my research statement.

Research Interests

My research interests are in the fields of nonlinear algebra and applied algebraic geometry. They broadly include :
  • Algorithms in numerical algebraic geometry :
    homotopy continuation, numerical certification
  • Applications in numerical algebraic geometry :
    game theory, algebraic statistics, combinatorics
  • Polyhedral geometry, tropical geometry, tensor rank problems

I endorse Federico Ardila's axioms:

Axiom 1. Mathematical talent 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.
