"As time goes on, it becomes increasingly evident that the rules which the mathematician finds interesting are the same as those which Nature has chosen."  Paul Dirac

Prof. Dr. Joscha Prochno

Chair of Functional Analysis

In 2011 I received my doctoral degree in mathematics from Christian-Albrechts-University in Kiel (Germany) under the supervision of Carsten Schütt. Starting in the local theory of Banach spaces, my current research interests are Asymptotic Geometric Analysis, Probability Theory, and very recently Information-based Complexity.

I am Full Professor (W3) and Chair of Functional Analysis at the University of Passau (Germany). Before I was Assistant Professor at the Institute of Mathematics and Scientific Computing at the University of Graz (Austria), a tenured Assistant Professor at the Department of Mathematics at the University of Hull (United Kingdom), and Visiting International Professor at Ruhr University Bochum (Germany). From 2013 until 2015 I held a Lise Meitner Grant at Johannes Kepler University in Linz (Austria) as a principal investigator and in 2012 I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Alberta in Edmonton (Canada).
