About Me

Since September 2019 I have been a Mathematics PhD student at Queen Mary University of London. I am associated with the algebra and number theory group and my supervisor is Alex Fink. My research interests include tropical geometry, toric varieties and related combinatorial objects. I am also interested in pedagogy, especially as it pertains to science and mathematics.

I fully support the Welcoming Environment Statement of the AWM. I believe that we should all be committed to maintaining a warm, welcoming, and inclusive mathematical environment.

I also support Federico Ardila's axioms for diversity in mathematics:

  • Mathematical talent is distributed equally among different groups, irrespective of geographic, demographic, and economic boundaries.
  • Everyone can have joyful, meaningful, and empowering mathematical experiences.
  • Mathematics is a powerful, malleable tool that can be shaped and used differently by various communities to serve their needs.
  • Every student deserves to be treated with dignity and respect.

I have adopted a poyhedron from polytopia, my polyhedron is N°902501 and has ƒ-Vector (9,18,11). I have named my polyhedron Amalie, after Emmy Noether.
