Polynomial optimization over hypercubes has important applications in combinatorial optimization. We develop a symmetry-reduction method that finds sums of squares certific
Annie Raymond is an assistant professor at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst. Originally from Montreal, she studied math and music at MIT as an undergrad before pursuing a Ph.D. in mathematics at the Technische Universitaet in Berlin and a postdoc at the University of Washington. At any given moment, you will most likely find her thinking about extremal graph theory and sums of squares---perhaps while riding her bicycle or playing the piano---or reflecting on education in prisons, on how to increase diversity in STEM and on how to bake the perfect sourdough.
