Prof. Dr. Daniel Matthes



Academic Career and Research Areas

The research of Prof. Matthes (b. 1975) explores the qualitative theory of partial differential equation solutions.

Prof. Matthes studied mathematics at TU Berlin and completed his doctorate there in 2003. He did postdoctoral research at the University of Mainz, the University of Pavia in Italy and TU Vienna. He later returned to Mainz as a visiting professor. In 2010, he was appointed professor at TUM.
