Alperen A. Ergür

  • Postdoc, Carnegie Mellon University

I am a postdoctoral researcher in CMU Theory of Computation group . My hosts are Venkat Gruswami and Pravesh Kothari .

I had the privilege to work with Felipe Cucker , Peter Bürgisser , Amin Coja-Oghlan , and Cynthia Vinzant . My PhD advisors were Grigoris Paouris and J. Maurice Rojas .

My research interests revolve around real algebraic geometry, discrete and convex geometry, optimization, high dimensional phenomena (such as concentration of measure), and connections of these topics with algorithms and complexity theory. My writings are on arxiv .

I am originally from Denizli , Turkey . I still hope that one day, Turkish people will not be scared to dissent.

Interests. Discrete and Convex Geometry, Real Algebraic Geometry, Optimization, Randomized Numerics, Theory of Computation
