About me

I am a third-year graduate student in the mathematics department at UC Berkeley. My advisors are Bernd Sturmfels and Serkan Ho┼čten. Here is my CV. My current research interests are in applied algebraic geometry and algebraic statistics.

I am grateful for the support of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and the UC Berkeley Chancellor's Fellowship.

I have received my bachelor's degree with high honors in mathematics from Wesleyan University where I was advised by Karen Collins. My undergraduate thesis titled "Combinatorial Nullstellensatz: Various Proofs, Extensions and Applications" can be found here.

Outside of academics, I enjoy reading, dancing, traveling, and solving puzzles. I write creative non-fiction and poetry (in Russian).

You can reach me by email at yulia@math.berkeley.edu.
