Research Activities at the Geometry Center

I am interested on the interaction among Combinatorics, Real Algebraic Geometry, Optimization, and Symbolic computation. Recently, I study the topology of smooth real algebraic hypersurfaces using techniques from combinatorial geometry. This project is closely related to the understanding of the space of subdivisions of a convex polytope. I also like to look at questions about the set of monotone paths on a polytope induced by a linear functional or about systems of polynomial inequalities.

Jesús holds a joint appointment as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Geometry Center and as a visiting faculty member of the School of Mathematics at the University of Minnesota.


Jesús first studied advanced mathematics at the School of Sciences of the National University of México (UNAM), where he obtained a B.S. in 1989. He was also a research assistant at the Institute of Mathematics, UNAM. Jesús received a M.A. from Western Michigan University in 1990, and later that year transferred to Cornell University. He received a Ph.D. in applied mathematics from Cornell in 1995.
