Münster Research Fellows

With the guest professor programme "Münster Research Fellows", our investigators invite distinguished mathematicians to a long-term stay in Münster. In this way we promote the exchange between researchers - beyond the borders of Mathematics Münster. The following outstanding researchers have already become Münster Research Fellows or will soon spend a longer period of time with us in Münster.

Grigor Sargsyan

November 2022

We welcome Prof. Dr. Grigor Sargsyan (Mathematics Institute of the Polish Academy of Sciences) as a Münster Research Fellow. Over the last one and a half decades, he has been one of the leading researchers in the area of analyzing HOD of determinacy models, hod mice, and the core model induction.

Masanori Morishita

July to August 2022

Prof. Dr. Masanori Morishita (Kyushu University, Japan) visited us as a Münster Research Fellow. He is the leading authority in the field of Arithmetic Topology founded by Yuri Manin and Barry Mazur, which explores analogies between number theory and 3-dimensional topology. His Springer book "Knots and Primes" is the standard reference in the field.

Kyungkeun Kang

July 2022

We are pleased that Prof. Dr. Kyungkeun Kang (Yonsei University) joined us as a Münster Research Fellow. His main research areas are Navier-Stokes equations, cross-diffusion systems and geometric maps. Kyungkeun Kang is full professor at Yonsei University (Seoul, South Korea), one of the three most prestigious institutions in the country.

Kilian Raschel

July 2022

Prof. Dr. Kilian Raschel (CNRS, Université d'Angers) joined our Cluster as a Münster Research Fellow for the second time. He works on the connections between combinatorics and probability, a principal topic being random walks in cones seen from a combinatorial and a probabilistic point of view.

Menachem Magidor

June 2022

We are honoured that Prof. Menachem Magidor (Hebrew University) visited our Cluster as a Münster Research Fellow. He is one of the most prominent set theorists and produced breakthrough results on cardinal arithmetic, on forcing axioms, on inner model theory, on various types of ideals and combinatorial principles, but also in the theory of uncountable abelian groups and generalized logics. In addition to his work in pure logic and set theory he made contributions to the applications of logic to computer science.

Rustum Choksi

April to May 2022

Prof. Dr. Rustum Choksi (McGill University) stayed at our Cluster as a Münster Research Fellow. He is a leading figure in the applied calculus of variations with contributions from mathematical materials science all the way to mathematical image processing.

Claude Warnick

October to December 2021

Dr. Claude Warnick (University of Cambridge) joined our Cluster as Münster Research Fellow. He studies non-linear partial differential equations, specifically the Einstein equations of general relativity. He is mainly known for his papers on asymptotically anti-de Sitter space times and developing a rigorous theory of quasinormal modes for a large class of black hole spacetimes.

Matthias Aschenbrenner

January to July 2019

For seven months Prof. Dr. Matthias Aschenbrenner (UCLA) joined the group of Prof. Dr. Dr. Katrin Tent as a Münster Research Fellow. His work centers in and around model theory, but has branched into other fields of mathematics, often using results and methods originating in mathematical logic.

Arnd Scheel

Arnd Scheel

July 2019

Prof. Dr. Arnd Scheel (University of Minnesota) joined the Cluster as a Münster Research Fellow. He is internationally renowned for his discoveries of mathematical principles of self-organization, in particular the dynamics of patterns and waves in complex systems.
