Anna Seigal

Anna Seigal is a third year graduate student in mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley. In her PhD project, she is studying tensors from a geometrical perspective.

Tensors can be understood as multidimensional analogues of matrices. A key challenge in the study of tensors is understanding how to extend results of linear algebra to the non-linear world of tensors. Anna focuses on studying theoretical properties of tensors using algebraic tools. She is inspired by connections to statistical applications, with the goal of developing new tensor-based tools for analysing multidimensional data.

Now in her third visit to MPI MiS, she has co-organized the workshop Interactions between algebra and the sciences on May 27. A talented communicator, Anna also enjoys writing about maths. Check out her blog!
