Prof. Juan Peypouquet joins Bernoulli Institute as new staff member

Prof. Juan Peypouquet (currently Associate Professor at the Mathematical Engineering Department, University of Chile, Santiago) has accepted the offer for full professor in Optimization from the University of Groningen (Bernoulli Institute, Department of Mathematics). He will join us early next year. Welcome Juan!

His main research interest is the study of the asymptotic behavior of dynamical systems in a broad sense, along with their applications in variational analysis and optimization. Especially, he studies algorithms for constrained variational inequalities and optimization problems, and evolution equations governed by non-autonomous monotone operators.

Again top results at ARWU Ranking
