# Madeline Brandt

Assistant Professor

#### Research Interests

I study combinatorial algebraic geometry. Algebraic geometry investigates shapes, which may be quite complicated. But, many aspects of their geometry can be described by discrete data and investigated computationally. I work on developing computational tools to study the geometry of these shapes.
