Matthias Voigt, Assistant Professor

Matthias Voigt is Assistant Professor with tenure track for the mathematics degree programme at UniDistance Suisse.

Matthias Voigt studied mathematics at Chemnitz University of Technology from 2004 to 2010. During this period, he spent time at the Moscow Aviation Institute in Russia, at the University of Helsinki in Finland, and at the Jülich Research Centre. Afterwards, he was a doctoral student at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics of Complex Technical Systems in Magdeburg and completed his doctorate at the Faculty of Mathematics at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg in 2015. During his doctoral studies, he also undertook research at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences in New York. Between 2014 and 2021 he was a research assistant at Technische Universität Berlin, before he took over the W3 Substitute Professorship in Optimisation of Complex Systems at Universität Hamburg from 2019 to 2021.
