Research Interest

I am a third year PhD student in Mathematics. My advisor is Uwe Nagel and my research interests lie in the field of Algebraic Statistics. In particular, I care about Hierarchical Models and their corresponding toric ideals. I study algebraic and geometric properties of these ideals, and algorithms that produce generating sets for them.
