Nasrin Altafi, postdoc

Newly employed

Nasrin Altafi is employed from 1 August 2021 as a postdoc at the Algebra & Geometry Section. She will be working with the Copenhagen Centre for Geometry and Topology.

Nasrin Altafi

Nasrin has a Master’s degree from University of Tehran (Iran) and a PhD from KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Sweden), finished in 2020 under the supervision of Professor Mats Boij. The title of her thesis is "Lefschetz properties and Jordan types of Artinian algebras" in which she studied the Hilbert functions of certain classes of Artinian algebras.

Nasrin’s research interests lie in commutative algebra and algebraic geometry as well as their interactions with combinatorics and computational algebra.

During her time in Copenhagen, she would like to continue studying the Hilbert functions of modules and explore the connection between their geometric and combinatorial properties. She will be working at the GeoTop Centre in the group of Professor Karim Adiprasito.

Nasrin is working from office 04.0.09.

In January 2022 Nasrin will start at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario (Canada), using an International Postdoc grant from the Swedish Research Council.
