Dynamics of the capillary rise: a peculiar occurrence of oscillations

My name is Mateusz Świtała and I am at my fifth year on Faculty of Pure and Applied Mathematics, Wrocław University of Science and Technology, Poland. My subject of study is Applied Mathematics and I am also giving tutorials in mathematical software programming. This work with younger students is very rewarding and inspiring for further […]

Funding and travel for PhD students?

Last May I visited the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica (CRM), a research institute located on the campus of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, Spain. I am a PhD candidate at the University of Limerick, Ireland and this international trip was my second visit to the CRM to work with my PhD co-supervisor Prof Tim Myers. […]


In the following lines, I will try to explain my experience while doing a Short Term Scientific Mission (STSM) with Professor Helen Byrne at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford, where you can feel maths everywhere around. As a headline, I can already state that it has been an incredible ‘adventure’ in many different senses […]

An Applied PhD at the Fraunhofer ITWM

My name is Stephan Wackerle and I am a PhD student in a cooperation between the Department for Flow and Material Simulation (SMS) at the Fraunhofer Institute for industrial Mathematics (ITWM) and the Technical University of Kaiserslautern. This cooperation is a great opportunity to gain already whilst the PhD-studies a lot of insights into the […]

Generalized Chaplygin gas model

My name is Sanja Ružičić and I am a first-year PhD student at Department of Mathematics and Informatics, Faculty of Sciences at University of Novi Sad. Also, I am currently employed as an Assistant at Chair of Analysis, Probability and Differential Equations at Department of Mathematics and Informatics where I received both undergraduate and graduate […]

An internship project on how to prevent and mitigate the risk of credit default on a retail bank

My name is Nuno Aires and I completed my master degree in Applied Mathematics to Engineering and Finance at the Engineering School, Polytechnic of Porto (Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto), Portugal. As a student of this master degree I had the opportunity to make, as my final project, an internship at a Bank. This […]

Atmospheric Tomography in Adaptive Optics

Turbulent air motion in the Earth’ atmosphere causes index of refraction fluctuations. In atmospheric tomography one aims at reconstructing this atmospheric turbulence from light wavefronts of bright astronomical objects or laser beacons from several directions that are measured on the ground. Atmospheric tomography is needed in tomographic Adaptive Optics (AO) systems in large ground-based telescopes. […]

Adaptive Optics in Extremely Large Telescopes

My name is Daniela Saxenhuber and I am currently finishing my PhD in Industrial Mathematics at the Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria. The focus of my research is the development of fast algorithms for atmospheric tomography in Adaptive Optics systems for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT) currently under construction in the Atacama Desert. […]

Master Studies in Industrial Mathematics in Linz

My name is Markus Pöttinger. Since November 2015 I’m a PhD student in Ronny Ramlau’s transfer group at the Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics (RICAM) in Linz. Upon completion of my bachelor studies in technical mathematics I decided to enroll into the master studies in industrial mathematics since I was (and still am) […]
