Khazhgali Kozhasov

I am a substitute professor in Mathematical Optimization at the University of Jena and a postdoctoral researcher (on leave) in the Applied Algebra group of Timo de Wolff at the TU Braunschweig. Summer and Winter semesters of 2021/22 I spent as a substitute professor in the Applied Algebra and Data Analysis group at the University of Osnabrück. From April 2018 till March 2019 I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Nonlinear algebra group of Bernd Sturmfels at MPI MiS. I have obtained PhD in May 2018 at SISSA where my advisors were Andrei Agrachev and Antonio Lerario.Here is my CV.

Research interests:

  • Real, computational, convex and random (algebraic) geometry
  • Polynomial and tensor optimization
  • Multi-linear algebra

I am particularly interested in non-negative polynomials and their applications as well as in ranks, low-rank approximations and eigenvectors of tensors.




In the ongoing semester I teach:

  • a master course "Polynomial optimization"
  • a seminar "Praktische Optimierung" ("Practical optimization")
  • a seminar "Kontinuierliche Optimierung" ("Continuous optimization") joint with Andreas Löhne
