Anna Seigal

I am an Assistant Professor of Applied Mathematics in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard, and an Affiliate in the Department of Statistics.

My research lies in the areas of applied algebra, tensors and multilinear algebra, applied algebraic geometry, and algebraic statistics.

I study data analysis questions and use algebraic approaches to answer them. This involves factorising data using matrix and tensor decompositions, solving systems of equations, and finding group structure and symmetries in models. I work on problems arising in parameter estimation, dimensionality reduction, causal inference, and optimization, as well as applications to study complex physical and biological systems.

Office hours: by appointment.

If you are a postdoc, graduate student, or undergraduate student interested in working on a research project with me, feel free to get in touch.
