Research Centre for Mathematical Modelling (RCM2)


RCM2 research visitor

We are delighted to welcome Alexey Garber (School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences) as RCM2 research visitor. His interests are discrete geometry and combinatorics with focus on parallelohedra theory, geometrical properties of quasiperiodic point sets, and measure equipartitions.
He recently won the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Fellowship for experienced researchers, and will spend a total of 9 month as research visitor at the RCM2. The visits will be spread over 3 years, for 3 month each year starting in 2021 (delayed from 2020).

RCM2 visiting professors

We are delighted to welcome Michael Coons (School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences of the University of Newcastle, Australia) and and Philip J. Gerrish (School of Biology of the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia) as RCM2 visiting professors.

Dr. Haik Mashurian appointed Professor in Zittau/Görlitz

As of November 1st, 2007, Dr. Haik Mashurian, a former staff member of the RCM2, has been appointed W2-Professor for biostatistics at the University of Applied Sciences of Zittau/Görlitz (FH).

After his PhD at the University of Jerevan (Armenia) and a postdoctoral year at the FU Berlin (at the chair of M. Aigner) he came to Bielefeld to first work in the information theory group of R. Ahlswede. Later, he worked on the topics of combinatorics and point process theory within the group of M. Baake. His last stage in Bielefeld was the group for biomathematics of E. Baake.

In Zittau/Görlitz he is going to play an important role in the program in biomathematics.
