Emma Hansen (she/her)
I am a PhD student in the Department of Mathematics at the University of British Columbia, working with Dr. Michael Friedlander on optimisation theory. I completed my Master's of Science in Aeronautics and Astronautics from the University of Washington, where my studies focused on control theory and optimisation. I am interested in algebraic and geometric approaches to problems in optimisation.
I really love math. Outside of academics I am an avid climber, and enjoy hiking, running, and being outdoors.
