Diane Maclagan

I am a Professor at the Mathematics Institute at the University of Warwick. Prior to coming to Warwick I spent three years in the Mathematics Department at Rutgers University. I have also spent time at Stanford and the Institute for Advanced Study. I was a graduate student at UC Berkeley, where my advisor was Bernd Sturmfels.
