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
