I previously worked as a professor (W2) at Philipps-Universität Marburg in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science from 2016 to 2022, where I lead the research group on optimization. Prior to that I was an assistant professor (W1) at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin in the Department of Mathematics from 2014 to 2016, where I lead the research group on nonsmooth optimization and variational analysis.
My research is in the development of theory and algorithms in mathematical optimization.

My research is in the development of theory and algorithms in mathematical optimization. More specifically, I am interested in PDE-constrained optimization under uncertainty, nonsmooth optimization and optimal control of partial differential equations. My work makes use of a wide array of techniques from functional and variational analysis, PDE theory, statistics, and management science.Back to Top

Optimization in Oslo (OiO) Seminar
The seminar will showcase internationally renowned speakers with a strong emphasis on topics involving, but not limited to, optimization under uncertainty, PDE-constrained optimization, optimal control of complex systems, uncertainty quantification, scientific machine learning, and application areas such as image processing, materials science and more. The OiO seminar is a part of a broader effort to grow interest in continuous optimization in Oslo and is open to students, postdoctoral researchers, and beyond.
The planned format of the talk is 50 minutes for your presentation and 10 minutes for questions. We are planning to allow people to remotely attend the event and, pending each speaker's consent, we will record the events and host them on YouTube. If you'd like to attend an event in person then please contact me directly.
