Probability & Statistics Group Heidelberg-Mannheim

Peter received his diploma in Mathematics from the University of Heidelberg (in topological dynamics supervised by Prof. Wolfgang Krieger). He completed his PhD in Mathematics at the Saarland University in 2013 (in stochastic analysis supervised by Prof. Christian Bender). He joined the research group in 2012 and is working on:

  • Stochastic analysis
  • Fractional Brownian motion
  • Malliavin calculus
  • (Numerical schemes for) SDEs

Helmut is a member of RTG1953 since August 2018.

He received his diploma in Mathematics from the University of Tübingen in 2012. He completed his PhD in Statistics at the Oxford University (2013-2015), was Assistant Professor at UC Berkeley (2015-2017) and Postdoc at TU Dresden (2017-2018).His research interests lie in probability theory and its applications as well as statistics. The problems he considers are motivated by questions arising in mathematical population genetics, statistical physics, and computer science. These questions often fit into the more general topic of large-scale limits of random combinatorial structures. More specifically, they include:

  • limit theorems in probability,
  • random trees and stochastic processes,
  • coalescent processes.
