Mathematics

Presently I’m a postdoc in the non-linear algebra group of Bernd Sturmfels at MPI Leipzig.

I did my PhD studies within the MathCoRe research training group at Otto-von-Guericke-Universität Magdeburg under the supervision of Thomas Kahle and Volker Kaibel.

My research interests lie in independence structures, which include matroids, gaussoids and the like, their axioms, synthesis problems, geometry and complexity. In my dissertation, I worked on the Gaussian conditional independence inference problem. Recently I have been interested in conditional independence of discrete random variables and the mixed volumes of convex bodies as well.

These topics touch algebra, statistics, geometry and computer science. I maintain the website gaussoids.de which contains various computer-readable data about Gaussian conditional independence structures and related objects.
