Yelena Mandelshtam

Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry


I am a fifth year graduate student in the mathematics department at UC Berkeley. My advisor is Bernd Sturmfels. I graduated with a B.S. in mathematics with honors and a minor in computer science from Stanford University in 2019. My honors thesis advisor was Andras Vasy. During the summers of 2020 and 2021 I was an advisor at the University of Minnesota Duluth Mathematics REU program.

In July-August 2024 I will be a President's Postdoctoral Fellow at UCLA. After that, I will be a member at the Institue for Advanced Study during the 2024-2025 academic year. In Fall 2025 I will move to the University of Michigan as an NSF postdoc and Parekh Research Assistant Professor.

I am grateful for the support of an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and a department fellowship funded by the Straus Graduate Student Support Fund.

Here is my CV. [current as of 2/04/2024]
