Leonie Kayser (she/her)

Math PhD student at MPI MiS Leipzig.


Hi, I’m Leonie, a PhD student in math at MPI MiS, Leipzig. I’m a member of the Nonlinear Algebra Group, my advisor is Simon Telen and my mentor is Fulvio Gesmundo. I am interested in Commutative Algebra and Algebraic Geometry with a view towards computation and applications.

I studied both mathematics and computer science at Leibniz University Hannover from 2016 to 2022. I wrote my master’s theses on The Waring problem for polynomials under Matthias Schütt and on Gröbner Bases and Their Complexity under Heribert Vollmer.
