Dr. Sara Kališnik Hintz

I am a Senior Scientist in the Department of Mathematics at ETH Zürich. In my research I develop and apply topological methods to analyze data from a variety of disciplines. These methods either measure the shape of the data set, that is, count the occurrences of patterns within it, or they build a combinatorial representation of its shape that can be combined with other methods. I collaborate with researchers from a variety of fields including topology, algebraic geometry, probability, statistics, and computer science, and also with experimental scientists.

I am the co-director of the Applied Algebraic Topology Research Network, which hosts a weekly Online Seminar. Recordings of our seminar are available at our YouTube Channel, which has over which has over 6900 YouTube subscribers, and averages over 24 hours watched per day.


AATRN will be geometrically realized at IMSI (Chicago) on August 18–22. Click here for the conference website.
