Academic Career and Research Areas

The research of Professor Krahmer (b. 1981) focuses on the mathematical foundations of signal and image processing. In particular, his research agenda covers randomized sensing methods, especially in compressed sensing, dimension reduction, and analog to digital conversion. His research involves not only the theoretical analysis of such methods but also their application, such as in a project on the non-destructive testing of steel pipes.

Krahmer studied mathematics at the International University Bremen (now Jacobs University), the Université de Paris Sud and New York University's Courant Institute, where he acquired his doctoral degree in 2009 under the supervision of Percy Deift and Sinan Güntürk. After completing his PhD he moved to the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics in Bonn to work as an HCM postdoctoral researcher in the group of Holger Rauhut. From 2012 to 2015 he was a junior professor of Mathematical Data Analysis and, commencing 2014, also headed an Emmy Noether junior research group, both at the University of Göttingen. In April 2015 he joined TUM as an assistant professor.
