Project description

The proposed research is at the interface of statistics and algebraic geometry. I will develop combinatorial, and geometric tools to study various statistical models from an algebraic viewpoint. In particular, I will focus on the study of Conditional Independence Models, Graphical Models, and
Gaussoids. I will use the developed techniques to study related applications in computer vision and rigidity theory.
