Daniel Bernstein

Daniel Bernstein just completed the fourth year of his PhD studies at North Carolina State University. He works on identifying, understanding, and exploiting algebraic and combinatorial structures that underly certain statistical and biological problems.

Recently, he has become interested in rigidity-type problems. A classic example of such a problem is generic graph rigidity,in which one wishes to classify the graphs that form rigid structures when built out of rods and ball-bearings. Another example is low-rank matrix completion. Some of these problems can be tackled using tropical geometry and Daniel is currently working with Lara Bossinger and Sara Lamboglia on developing this approach. He is also working with Rainer Sinn and Greg Blekherman on a project that aims at understanding the peculiarities of matrix completion over the real numbers.
