Thomas Kahle

Thomas Kahle works at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg on bridges between algebra and applications in statistics as well as biology.

In an ongoing project with Tobias Boege, Alessio D’Ali, and Bernd Sturmfels he is investigating the logical structures that underlie the independence of Gaussian random variables. The concept of a gaussoid captures these structures similarly to matroids capturing independence in linear algebra.

Thomas is also addressing questions of extremal behaviour in commutative algebra and its effects on the worst case and average case complexity of common algorithms in commutative algebra.

From 2006 to 2010 Thomas worked for his Diploma and PhD thesis at MPI MiS in the group of Jürgen Jost. Since Bernd Sturmfels started his group in Leipzig, there are many activities that interests him and he tries to visit the institute several times per year.
