Statistical Modeling of Complex Systems and Processes

Postdoctoral fellow

The research training groups offers fellowships for one or two postdoctoral researchers who participate in the research and the training activities of the group.

Claudia was born in Pritzwalk in Northern Germany. She received her diploma in mathematics with a minor in economics from the University of Ulm. Her major fields of study were financial mathematics and stochastics, and her diploma thesis dealt with "Importance Sampling  for Credit Risk Measurement".
She started her PhD studies at the University of Hamburg in October 2009, focusing on different issues of statistics of multivariate ergodic diffusion processes. In June of 2013, she completed her PhD in mathematics. She has worked as a research assistant at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum and as a visiting assistant professor at the University of Hamburg. In April 2015 she joined the research group as a postdoctoral research fellow.  Claudia's research interests are

  •  statistics of stochastic processes
  •  nonparametric statistics
  •  empirical processes

Martin joined the research group in October 2014 and is working on

  • point processes and their statistical inference
  • statistical inverse problems

He defended his thesis "Concentration inequalities for Poisson point processes with applications to nonparametric statistics" on March 22th in Mannheim and will continue to be our member to be financed with Startup funding.
He was supervised by Prof. Dr. Martin Schlather and Prof. Dr. Jan Johannes
