POEMA Host Institution: Univ. of Tromsoe, Norway
Background: MSc in Mathematics at the University of Vienna, Master thesis title: “Non-negativity vs. sums of squares in equivariant situations”.
Research interests: Real algebra, convex geometry and intersections with optimization. I am interested in problems where symmetry can be exploited to reduce the complexity and sums of squares techniques can be applied.
POEMA project: “Numerical cubature with symmetry and applications to polynomial optimization”, I am looking forward to the secondments at the University of Konstanz where I will work with Prof. Schweighofer, at INRIA Méditerranée with Senior Research Scientist Evelyne Hubert and at Artelys in Paris.
