Prof. Dr. Noam Berger


Probability Theory



Academic Career and Research Areas

Noam Berger conducts research in the field of probability theory. His research concentrates on discrete stochastic processes with the main emphasis on processes in random media.
Berger studied at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and received his PhD in statistics from the University of California, Berkeley. He held postdoctoral positions at CalTech and UCLA before return­­ing to the Hebrew University of Jerusalem to take up a faculty position. Since 2012 he has been an associate professor at TUM.
