Stay: August 21 - September 7, 2017
After studying mathematics and receiving her doctorate in 1987 at the University of Mannheim, Claudia Klüppelberg held teaching and research positions in Mannheim, at ETH Zürich and in Mainz until she was appointed Full Professor of Mathematical Statistics at the Technische Universität München in 1997. From 2008 to 2011, she also led the focus group on risk analysis and stochastic modeling at the Institute of Advanced Studies in Munich. The research interests of Professor Klüppelberg cover a large spectrum of topics in statistics and applied probability. Much of her work has been concerned with risk analysis and its applications in economics, finance, and the environment. The methods that she designed, developed, and implemented through cooperation with industry have contributed to the improvement of risk management practices. With several books and over 150 scientific articles, Professor Klüppelberg is not only a prolific author but also a co-Editor of the Springer Finance Series and the “Lévy Matters” Subseries of Springer’s Lecture Notes in Mathematics. She is an elected Fellow of the Institute of Mathematical Statistics and held various offices in the Bernoulli Society.
