Tim Laux

I am 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. Previously, I did my PhD under the supervision of Felix Otto at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences.

I am an applied geometric analyst. Using 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.

  • Next summer, I'm organizing a graduate seminar "Understanding Data via PDEs" (S5B3 - Graduate Seminar on New Developments in PDE). The preliminary meeting is on Friday, February 3, at 16:00 in SR 0.011.
  • We're organizing the first Young African Mathematicians (YAM) Symposium! Students & faculty in Bonn: come visit on November 29.
  • Save the date: We're organizing a Hausdorff School "Analysis of PDEs: Variational and Geometric Perspectives" during the week July 10-14, 2023 and a Hausdorff Workshop "Nonlinear PDEs: Recent Trends in the Analysis of Continuum Mechanics" during the week July 17-21, 2023. More info will follow soon!
