Robert Weismantel

Robert Weismantel is a leading expert and one of the driving forces in the area of Mathematical Optimisation and Discrete Mathematics. He is a professor of Mathematics and Head of the Institute for Operations Research at ETH Zurich, Switzerland. His research is internationally recognised and has produced several new theories and algorithms. In the future, Weismantel's professional competence will enhance the research of MATH+, Cluster of Excellence of the three main Berlin universities, which combines theoretical and applied mathematics in Berlin. The research alliance aims at developing a theory for mixed integer optimisation problems in high dimensions.
