BIO

Anna Schenfisch earned undergraduate degrees from the University of Wyoming in music performance (violin) and mathematics. During her time as an undergraduate, she spent a summer in Pittsburgh doing research in extremal graph theory as part of Carnegie Mellon's REU for applied mathematics. Currently, Anna is a graduate student at Montana State University in the department of mathematical sciences.  Her research involves both computational topology and computational geometry. Currently, she is working on exploring shape reconstruction using various topological descriptors such as persistence diagrams or Euler characteristic curves. Her interests outside of math include running, cooking, and reading.
