Tim Laux

I am a professor of mathematics at the University of Regensburg, my new webpage can be found here.

Previously, I was a Bonn Junior Fellow at the Institute for Applied Mathematics and the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics in Bonn. Until 2019, I was a Morrey Visiting Assistant Professor at UC Berkeley. In 2017, I finished my PhD under the supervision of Felix Otto at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences.

I am an applied geometric analyst. With methods from geometric analysis, calculus of variations and nonlinear partial differential equations, I aim to address fundamental questions arising in physics, materials science, numerics, and data science. I am particularly interested in the rigorous justification of the emergence of geometric variational principles or geometric flows.
