Diane Maclagan is a Reader in Mathematics at the University of Warwick. Her research focuses on combinatorial and computational aspects of algebraic geometry, particularly on aspects of toric varieties and tropical geometry.
In recent and ongoing work with Felipe Rincon and others she has been developing a scheme theory for tropical geometry. This involves studying tropical ideals, which are ideals in the semiring of tropical polynomials satisfying extra conditions derived from the theory of valuated matroids.
Diane recently visited MPI MiS for the Macaulay2 workshop.
