Academic Career and Research Areas
Dr. Dietrich studied Scientific Computing (B.Sc.) at the University of Applied Sciences, Munich and the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden. He obtained his Masters (2014) and PhD (2017) in Mathematics from the Technical University of Munich, in the Elite Program TopMath. Between 2017 and 2019, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Whiting School of Engineering at Johns Hopkins University, and a Visiting Research Collaborator at Princeton University, working with Prof. Kevrekidis. In 2019, Dr. Dietrich joined TUM to work as a research associate at the chair of Scientific Computing. Since 2022, he leads his own DFG Emmy Noether Junior Research group at the Technical University of Munich.
Dr. Dietrich (b. 1989) conducts research in the analysis and development of numerical algorithms for machine learning. This includes algorithms to enable, accelerate, and optimize simulation and analysis of complex dynamical systems, nonlinear manifold learning techniques, and the connection of neural networks with Gaussian processes. His group focuses on kernel methods and data-driven approximations of Koopman and Laplace operators.
