Lukas Wolff

Scientific Assistant

I am a PhD student at the Chair for Dynamics, Control and Numerics at FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg. I am currently working on the subproject C07 “Random batch methods for optimal control of network dynamics” of the CRC-154 funded by the DFG. My main fields of interest are the analysis and optimal control theory of partial differential equations. 

I studied mathematics with a minor degree in engineering at Technische Universität Berlin from 2014 – 2021 with a focus on PDE’s, variational calculus, differential geometry and the engineering aspects of fluid dynamics. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in June 2018 with a final thesis about the stationary non-Newtonian Navier-Stokes problem and my Master’s degree in February 2021 with the final thesis “On the analysis of a variational model for pattern formation in biomembranes”. 

I had the great opportunity of spending 3 semesters abroad on 2 separate ERASMUS+ scholarships. I studied physics and mathematics for a full academic year at Durham University, UK in 2016-17. Additionally, I studied applied mathematics at the INP Grenoble and pure mathematics at the Université Grenoble Alpes for one semester in 2018-19.
