Michael Adamer is a (short-term) postdoctoral researcher in Bernd Sturmfels' Nonlinear Algebra group. With a background in Physics, Michael did his DPhil in Mathematics at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Heather Harrington, Thomas Woolley and Eamonn Gaffney. In his thesis, Michael explored the role of stochastic parameters in chemical reaction networks and the interplay of graph theory and geometry in model selection. He also used techniques from toric geometry and intersection theory to study the algebraic complexity of classes of chemical reaction networks.
Now in Leipzig, he is excited about exploring the intersection of the study of D-modules and algebraic statistics with a view to doing concrete computations.
When not doing math, Michael can be found either at the climbing wall, at a rock concert or travelling the globe.
