Maddie Weinstein

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

My current research focuses on persistent homology.

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

Outreach

In 2017-2018, Madeline Brandt and I are running 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 . Every other week, we host a reading group to discuss articles on gender diversity in STEM. I also lead a group of students to volunteer as math tutors at Willard Middle School in Berkeley. Throughout the year, we will host events to support undergraduate math majors at Berkeley. Please contact me if you would like to participate!
