Maddie Weinstein

I am a third-year math graduate student at UC Berkeley working with Bernd Sturmfels.

My current research interests include algebraic geometry, intersection theory, and topological data analysis.

I am grateful for the support of an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and the UC Berkeley Chancellor's Fellowship.

Here is my CV, updated September 2018.

Outreach

Madeline Brandt and I run Gender Equity in Mathematical Studies at UC Berkeley. We founded this group with a grant from the Institute for Advanced Study Women and Mathematics program and Lisa Simonyi as part of the Women and Mathematics Ambassadorship Program. Activities include a reading group to discuss articles on gender diversity in STEM, volunteering as math tutors at Willard Middle School in Berkeley, and events to support undergraduate math majors at Berkeley. Please contact me if you would like to participate!
