# Marta Pavelka

Marta is a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Mathematical Sciences at the Carnegie Mellon University, working with Florian Frick as her mentor. She obtained her Ph.D. at the University of Miami a year ago, having worked with Bruno Benedetti. Her research is focused on the interaction of Combinatorics with Geometry; especially triangulations of manifolds and, more generally, simplicial complexes.

## Teaching Activities

Marta received a Teaching Excellence Award from the University of Miami Department of Mathematics in May 2022. She teaches math the way she teaches yoga – leading her students to overcome challenges by developing a consistent practice.
