Plenary Speakers

Visiting and research positions led him to the universities of Stanford,

Zurich, and Bonn as well as to the MPI Leipzig. In 1994, he was awarded a

Heisenberg fellowship of the DFG. Since 1997, he has been a professor of

mathematics at the University of Bonn.

From 2012–2019, he was the Spokesperson of the Excellence Cluster

Hausdorff Center for Mathematics. He is also PI of the Collaborative

Research Center 1060 “The Mathematics of Emerging Effects” at the

University of Bonn, funded since 2013. Before that, from 2002–2012, he

was Vice-Spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center 611 “Singular

Phenomena and Scaling in Mathematical Models”.

The focus of his research is in Stochastic and Geometric Analysis. He gained

particular attention with his work on “Analysis on local Dirichlet spaces”

as well as with his pioneering work on synthetic Ricci bounds for metric

measure spaces.

In 2016, he was awarded an ERC Advanced Grant for his research project

“Metric measure spaces and Ricci curvature – analytic, geometric, and

probabilistic challenges”.
