My name is Maximilian Wiesmann. I am a first year PhD student at the Max-Planck-Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig, Germany. My supervisor is Eliana Duarte and I am part of the Nonlinear Algebra group led by Bernd Sturmfels.

My research interests are in Algebraic Geometry and its applications, in particular Toric Geometry, Algebraic Statistics and Quantum Information Theory.
