Principal Investigator, Vice Speaker
Leonhard Frerick was born in Dorsten, Germany. He received his Diploma degree 1991 as well as his Phd 1994 from Trier University.
From 1995 till 2006 he worked as an assistant at the Bergische Universität Wuppertal, where he received his Habitation 2001. He has been a full professor for Analysis at Trier University since October 2006.
He is ordinary member of the Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics (IUMPA) at the technical University of Valencia (UPV).
Since 2010 he responsible for the Ada-Lovelace-Projekt Trier.
Nicole Marheineke holds a PhD from University of Kaiserslautern, where she was junior professor for mathematical and computational modeling from 2008 to 2010. From 2010 to 2017 she was professor at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, before she joined Trier University as chair for mathematical modeling and numerics. She is scientific advisor of Fraunhofer-Institute for Industrial Mathematics (ITWM) Kaiserslautern. Her research interests are model hierarchies (asymptotics, model order reduction, stochastic surrogates), numerics and optimization for partial and stochastic differential equations.
Martin Schmidt studied Mathematics and Computer Science at the Leibniz Universität Hannover and received his PhD in 2013 in the area of algorithmic optimization. From 2014 to 2018 he was junior professor for the optimization of energy systems at the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg and the Energy Campus Nürnberg.
His research interests are mixed-integer nonlinear optimization as well as multilevel modeling and optimization. He develops novel algorithms for solving these problems for real-world and large-scale instances. His application focus is on the energy sector.
Principal Investigator, Speaker
Volker Schulz received his diploma (M.Sc.) in mathematics from the University of Augsburg in 1990 and his PhD in 1996 form the University of Heidelberg, where he also finished his habilitation in 2000. From 1999 to 2001, he served as head of the research group on nonlinear optimization and inverse problems at WIAS, Berlin. Since 2001, he is full professor at Trier University.
He is a member of the editorial boards of the journals SIAM Journal on Scientific Computing, Computing and Visualization in Science, Acta Applicandae Mathematica and Mathematical Modeling and Applied Computing. He is the speaker of the DFG-funded research training group on Algorithmic Optimization.
Frank Seifried holds a PhD from University of Kaiserslautern, where he was an assistant professor for mathematical finance from 2011 to 2015. In 2015 he joined Trier University as a professor for probability theory. He is a scientific advisor of Fraunhofer ITWM Research Institute and serves on the editorial board of Mathematical Methods of Operations Research.
