“I will explain how tropical degenerations and birational specialization techniques can be used in rationality problems. In particular, I will apply these techniques to study quartic fivefolds and complete intersections of a quadric and a cubic in P^6. This is joint work with Johannes Nicaise…

The Mallows measure on the symmetric group gives a way to generate random permutations which are more likely to be sorted than not. There has been a lot of recent work to try and understand limiting properties of Mallows permutations. I'll discuss recent work on the joint distribution of…

The problem of group synchronization asks to recover states of objects

associated with group elements given possibly corrupted relative state

measurements (or group ratios) between pairs of objects. This problem

arises in important data-related tasks, such as structure from…
