The research group explores applications of discrete and algebraic methods in biology and statistics, as well as purely mathematical questions.

There are always projects for BSc, MSc, or PhD theses. Please talk to me if you are interested. Possible topics include

  • Algebraic statistics, e.g. semi-algebraic structures in optimal experimental design.
  • Computer algebra, e.g. (de)compositions of (binomial) ideals.
  • Structural properties of binomial ideals
  • Real roots of multivariate polynomial systems in biology.
