About me

Since January 2014, I am a postdoctoral researcher at Aalto Science Institute. I am associated with Alexander Engström's group and AScI thematic program "Challenges in Large Geometric Structures and Big Data".

I have spent a semester at the Simons Institute in Berkeley attending the program "Algorithms and Complexity in Algebraic Geometry" and a semester at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn working with Bernd Sturmfels. I defended my PhD thesis "Algebraic and combinatorial aspects of group-based models" in May 2013 at Freie Universität Berlin. My supervisors were Christian Haase and Klaus Altmann. I was a member of Berlin Mathematical School

Research interests: applied, computational and numerical algebraic geometry, algebraic statistics, polyhedral geometry and discrete mathematics.

I wrote a research vignette for the Simons Institute newsletter.

I am attending a nine-course introduction to data science on Coursera. My work for these courses is available at https://github.com/kaiekubjas and http://rpubs.com/kaiekubjas.
