The MATH+ Board awarded three further MATH+ Distinguished Fellowships to Peter K. Friz (Technische Universität Berlin), Bruno Klingler (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin), and Alexander Mielke (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin/WIAS). The first MATH+ Distinguished Fellowship was awarded to Gavril Farkas (Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin) in May 2022.


With the Distinguished Fellowship Program, MATH+ recognize outstanding contributions to the mathematical sciences and supports the work of world-leading mathematicians in Berlin.


Peter K. Friz is Einstein Professor for Stochastics und Financial Mathematics at Technische Universität Berlin and at the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) since 2017. After an appointment at the University of Cambridge, he came to TU Berlin in 2009.


Bruno Klingler is working on Arithmetic and Algebraic geometry. He worked at Université Paris-Diderot before he became Einstein Professor at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in 2016.


Alexander Mielke is professor of Applied Analysis at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and Head of the Partial Differential Equations Research Group at the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) in Berlin.


Gavril Farkas is professor of Algebraic Geometry at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. He was named the first MATH+ Distinguished Fellow in May 2022.


MATH+ will provide the Distinguished Fellows with a fellowship allowance for fostering innovative ideas and research activities, initiating exciting, vibrant research collaborations, and expanding the international research network and activities. The fellowship allowance is available for three years.


A more detailed introduction of the MATH+ Distinguished Fellows will be published over the following months.
