The Hannspeter Winter Prize is the annual prize for the best PhD thesis by a female student at TU Wien. Each of the eight departments may nominate at most one candidate, resulting in an interdisciplinary competition.
Dr. Leila Taghizadeh has been awarded the Hannspeter Winter Award 2020 of TU Wien for fundamental research in applied mathematics.
Congratulations to Leila!
Since her PhD defense in October 2019, Leila is a postdoc in my group Machine Learning and Uncertainty Quantification at the Institute of Analysis and Scientific Computing at TU Wien. Her work focuses on mathematical modeling, analysis, and simulation of stochastic PDE systems with applications in biology, medicine, and physics. Currently she is also working on uncertainty quantification in epidemiological models (applied to COVID-19).
Twelve PhD positions are available for the PhD program in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) at the Department of Engineering Enzo Ferrari of the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia on advanced research areas and topics in the fields of electronic engineering and computer science, as described here.
The lecture Reinforcement Learning (lecture with tutorial, 101.789 VU Reinforcement Learning, 4h, 6 ECTS) taught by Daniel Pasterk and myself, is now officially part of the curriculum for the MSc degree in Data Science in the module MLS/EX Machine Learning and Statistics – Extension.
Gemeinsam mit Ronald Hochreiter (Webster University), Daniel Huppmann (IIASA), Gerold Petritsch (EVN, ÖGOR) und Leopold Sögner (IHS) organisiere ich den 15. ÖGOR Workshop über Mathematische Ökonomie und Optimierung in der Energiewirtschaft vom 25. bis 26.6.2020 an der Webster University Wien. Offizielle Ankündigung.
I am organizing the minisymposium on Optimization and Model-Free Learning at the SIAM Conference on Mathematics of Data Science (MDS20).
We will organize five workshops at the Erwin Schrödinger Institute (ESI) in Vienna within the thematic program Computational Uncertainty Quantification: Mathematical Foundations, Methodology and Data in spring 2020:
The homepage of the thematic program at ESI is here.
A position for a PhD student is available within a cooperation with the University of Udine, the details are here.
The position has been filled in the meantime.
