Dr Dietmar Oelz


I studied Technical Mathematics at the Vienna University of Technology. I also earned a Master's degree in Law and I finished the first ("non-clinical") part of Medical Studies at the University of Vienna. Under the direction of Christian Schmeiser and Peter Markowich I earned my PhD in Applied Mathematics at the University of Vienna in 2007. During this time I spent several months at the University of Buenos Aires and at the ENS-Paris rue d'Ulm.

Before coming to UQ, I held post-doc positions at the Wolfgang Pauli Insitute (Vienna), University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences (RICAM). In 2013 I won an Erwin Schrödinger Fellowship of the Austrian Science Fund (FWF). I was a post-doc researcher in the group of Alex Mogilner first at UC Davis, then at the Courant Institute of Math.
