About Me
My name is Shahrzad Jamshidi, but most people call me Sara. I am a PhD student at Penn State working with Dr. Jason Morton. My interests are broad, but I am currently focused on understanding ideals and varieties on tree Markov models and translating those objects into a setting more suitable to entanglement.
I love math. More importantly, I see the development and accessibility of the subject to be crucial to the future of humanity. Every major problem we face has a significant mathematical component. Whether you're talking about the degradation of the environment, infectious disease, limited energy, overpopulation, or global poverty, math literacy is needed to understand the problem and mathematics will be an essential tool in finding a solution.
