Future proof — Mateusz Michałek (19.10.2020)

After countless publications, the composition of an extensive book on Nonlinear Algebra and many fruitful mathematical discussions Mateusz Michałek has left the institute for a new position at the University of Konstanz. More than three years of exemplary science as research group leader in “Combinatorial Algebraic Geometry” under his belt, he now took on the function of professor of Geometry (Real Geometry and Algebra). We would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations on his well-deserved success and wish him all the best in his new position. Mateusz gives us a wonderful insight into his mathematical uprising and features his research at the institute in our Future proof column.

Future proof — Tim Laux appointed Bonn Junior Fellow (07.02.2020)

We would like to congratulate our former IMPRS and PhD student Tim Laux on his appointment as Bonn Junior Fellow at the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (HCM) in January of this year. He continues to be interested in problems of geometric analysis with his current research group on variational methods and mathematical aspects of materials science. At the end of July Tim will be hosting his first workshop at the HCM on the topic of geometric and applied analysis (registration is open until May 31, respectively March 31, 2020, for funding opportunities).

Tim wrote his dissertation under the supervision of Felix Otto on the topic of "Convergence of phase-field models and thresholding schemes via the gradient-flow structure of multi-phase mean-curvature flow". In 2018 he was awarded the prestigious Otto Hahn medal for his outstanding performance as a junior scientist. After his post-doc at the institute, he became a Morrey Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of California, Berkeley.
