Scientific Advisory Board

The Board consists of five prestigious researchers covering the main research areas of IMTech.



Alain Goriely

University of Oxford, Mathematical Institute

Professor of Mathematical Modelling, his research focuses on the study and development of mathematical methods for applied sciences. Director of the Oxford Centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (OCIAM), co-director of the International Brain and Mechanics Lab, and director of External Relations and Public Engagement at the Mathematical Institute.

Victor M. Panaretos

EPFL Lausanne, Institute of Mathematics

Director of the Institute of Mathematics. Holds the Chair of Mathematical Statistics, which focuses on probability modeling and statistical inference for functional and geometrical data and associated statistical inverse problems in the natural sciences. ERC Starting Grant "Statistical inference for random functions and measures" (2010-2016).

Daniel Peralta

Institute of Mathematical Sciences (ICMAT), Madrid

His research lines concern the connections and interplay between dynamical systems, partial differential equations and differential geometry. This includes different topics in fluid mechanics, spectral theory and conservative dynamics. ERC Starting Grant "Invariant manifolds in dynamical systems and PDE" (2014-2018).

Oleg Pikhurko

University of Warwick, Mathematics Institute and DIMAP

His research focuses on combinatorics and graph theory, and connections to probability, logic, descriptive set theory, and analysis. His research is supported by the Leverhulme Research Project Grant "Measurable Combinatorics". ERC Starting Grant "Extremal Combinatorics" (2012-2018). 

Sarah Zerbes

University College London, Department of Mathematics

Her research interests are Algebraic number theory,  automorphic forms, p-adic Hodge theory, Iwasawa theory, Euler systems and special values of L-functions. Her research is supported by an EPSRC New Horizon Grant and ERC Starting Grant "Euler systems and the Birch--Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture" (2014-2020).
