Mahsa Sayyary Namin

Mahsa Sayyary Namin is a second year PhD student at MPI MiS. Her advisor is Bernd Sturmfels. Before that, she wrote a Master thesis in commutative algebra and studied some special families of Cohen--Macaulay graphs.

Her PhD project revolves around the real algebraic geometry of curves, especially curves of degree six. In the plane, they are the first nontrivial case in the real topological type classification. In the space, a classical construction relates an important family of these genus 4 curves to the del Pezzo surfaces of degree one. Study of the hyperplanes that have special intersections with these curves is currently her major topic of research.

Playing Basketball in the Landesliga is her main extracurricular activity.
