After joining the Max Planck Fellow Programme in December 2019 Michael Joswig sat down with us to talk about his aspirations as a new group leader, his career leading up to this point and where he sees the future of mathematics.
If you feel inspired by his words or would like to know more about his brainchild, you should register for the 11th Polymake conference on January 24th at our institute.
Watch the full interview (18 mins) to get to know the Einstein-Professor of discrete mathematics and geometry at the Technical University of Berlin and fresh Max Planck Fellow. He tells us about his favorite unsolved problem in mathematics, what an ideal PhD student would be like and the most memorable moment of his career.
