Gaku Liu is a postdoctoral researcher at MPI MiS. He received his PhD from MIT under the supervision of Alexander Postnikov. He is currently funded by a Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellowship from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
Gaku works in combinatorics, in particular polytopes, subdivisions, and other aspects of geometric combinatorics. He has previously worked on understanding the nature of certain topological spaces associated to polyhedral subdivisions and oriented matroids. He has recently been interested in problems in algebraic geometry which can be translated to combinatorial problems on polytopes.
