ABOUT AMY WIEBE
I'm the Dirichlet Postdoctoral Fellow of the Berlin Mathematical School working with the Discrete Geometry group at Freie Universität Berlin. I enjoy studying interesting combinatorial problems, cooking (and eating!), dancing, binge watching Netflix, and vacationing in Las Vegas.
I did my PhD at the University of Washington under the supervision of Rekha Thomas.
Selected Publications. For a complete list see my research page.
THE SLACK REALIZATION SPACE OF A POLYTOPE
This paper describes the construction of a new realization space model for polytopes. It represents a polytope by its slack matrix and obtains the realization space from the variety of a determinantal ideal. The properties and applications of this model are studied in detail.
THE SLACK REALIZATION SPACE OF A MATROID
2018 (Algebraic Combinatorics)
This paper extends the slack model of a realization space to matroids. We describe the model, its relationship to standard realization space models, its connection to projective uniqueness of matroids, and how it can be used to efficiently compute realizability.
LARGE SET OF COMPLEX AND REAL EQUIANGULAR LINES
2015 (Journal of Combinatorial Theory (Series A))
Large sets of equiangular lines are constructed from sets of mutually unbiased bases, over both the complex and the real numbers.
This work is one of several constructions resulting from the work in my Master's thesis.

UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON
September 2014 - June 2019
I worked as a teaching assistant for pre-calculus, and calculus I and II. I was a grader for senior level discrete and linear optimization. I was the instructor of record for pre-calculus. I was TA mentor to a small group of incoming graduate student teaching assistants, and I spent a year as the lead teaching assistant for the mathematics department.
SIMON FRASER UNIVERSITY
September - December 2012
September - December 2013
I graded for senior level cryptography and coding theory classes, and I was a teaching assistant in the Q workshop which serviced numerical foundations (pre-calculus) and math for teachers courses.
2002 - 2011
I worked as a private tutor in mathematics and the sciences, primarily serving children with learning disabilities from elementary to high school. I also worked part-time for 5 years as a high school special education assistant.
