Alumni


Dr. Daniel Hoffmann

Daniel was a member of the DFG Research Training Group ALOP and investigated branching processes for non-local PDEs and discrete-state mean-field games. He successfully defended his PhD thesis in 2020.


Prof. Dr. Christoph Belak

Christoph was a post-doctoral researcher working in stochastic control with frictions, in particular portfolio optimization with transaction costs. In 2019, he moved on to an Assistant Professor position at TU Berlin.


Dr. The Anh Nguyen

The's research interest focused on post-crisis multi-curve interest rate modeling. The successfully defended his PhD thesis in 2016.


Dr. Thomas Seiferling

Thomas studied continuous-time recursive utility, with a particular emphasis on the Epstein-Zin parametrization and applications to consumption-portfolio optimization. He successfully defended his PhD thesis in 2016.
