Stephan Weis

post-doctoral researcher


I obtained a PhD in mathematics in 2009 from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany, under supervision by Andreas Knauf. In 2011 I moved to Leipzig, Germany, to work with Arleta Szkoła and Nihat Ay at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences. I was a post-doctoral researcher at the State University of Campinas, Brazil (2015-2016), at the Ecole Polytechnique de Bruxelles, Belgium (2016-2018), and at the University of Coimbra, Portugal (2018).
