Luis Scoccola

About me

I am a postdoc at the Math department at Northeastern University, working with Jose Perea.

I studied Math and Computer Science at the University of Buenos Aires, and got a PhD in Mathematics from the University of Western Ontario, under the supervision of Dan Christensen.

Research interests

Computational Topology, connections to Algebra, Geometry, and Statistics, and applications to Machine Learning and Data Analysis. I have also worked on Formalization and Type Theory.
