## Activities

Summer 2018: I am organizing, with Andre Uschmajew and Bart Vandereycken, a mini-symposium in the SIAM Conference in Applied Linear Algebra, called "Tensors and Multilinear Algebra".

Summer 2017: I organized, with Elina Robeva, a mini-symposium in the SIAM Conference in Applied Algebraic Geometry, called "Tensors: From Algebra to Applications". The webpage is here.

Spring 2017: I organized the workshop Interactions between Algebra and the Sciences with Jacinta Torres. It took place on May 27th at MPI Leipzig.

Fall 2016: I co-organized a tensors reading group Foundational Tensor Theory with Rocky Foster.

Fall 2015: I organized a Commutative Algebra reading group.

## Previous Research

I wrote my master's thesis (Part III essay) with John Coates on the "Iwasawa Theory of Elliptic Curves with Complex Multiplication" in Cambridge, spring 2014. See here for a pdf copy.

In summer 2013, I did a research project at Imperial College, London under the supervision of Mike Levin. We analysed biological pathways associated with susceptibility to a range of inflammatory diseases.

In summer 2012 I attended the Kupcinet-Getz Program at the Weizmann Institute in Israel. I worked with Sergei Yakovenko on algebraic properties of local dynamics of intersections. We published a paper, see above.
