# Jose Acevedo

I'm a first year PhD student in Mathematics at Georgia Tech and my advisor is Professor Greg Blekherman.

I was a master's student at Universidad de los Andes (Bogota, Colombia) working under the direction of Professor Mauricio Velasco.

I'm interested in applications of Algebraic Geometry and Representation Theory to Polynomial Optimization.
