About me

I am a tenure-track assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Systems Analysis at Aalto University (on leave). In 2018-2019, I am a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow at Sorbonne Université PolSys Team hosted by Mohab Safey El Din. In 2017-2018, I was a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Fellow at MIT LIDS and IDSS hosted by Caroline Uhler.

I work in the field of applied algebraic geometry. I am particularly interested in algebraic statistics and applications in biology, for example in phylogenetics and 3D genome reconstruction. I am also interested in different problems related to matrices and tensors, e.g. nonnegative rank, positive semidefinite rank and low-rank matrix/tensor completion. Besides algebraic geometry, I like to use tools from combinatorics, polyhedral geometry and convex optimization.

I wrote a research vignette for the Simons Institute newsletter.
