# 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 recently obtained her Ph.D. at the University of Miami, 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. This year, Marta is co-organizing the Algorithms, Combinatorics, and Optimization (ACO) Seminar, hosted by CMU.
