Research of Carina Geldhauser


I am currently a Ph.D. student at University of Bonn in the group of Probability Theory, working under the supervision of Prof. Anton Bovier. I am a Klaus Murmann graduate fellow and a member of Bonn International Graduate School in Mathematics.

Research Outline

My research deals with phenomena arising in physics and image processing. To solve the questions arising there, I use tools from applied analysis, partial differential equations and probability theory. My goal is to capture the qualitative and quantitative behavior of solutions of nonlinear partial differential equations, which can be perturbed by noise.

Apart from Maths...

I am a volunteer at Studies Without Borders, where I take care on our scholarship programme for students from the Northern Caucasus Region. Our scholarship programme has won the 2011's Rector's award for extraordinary achievement of a student organization. Learn more about Studies Without borders here or read my reportage on Chechnya here.


On the right are some events where you can meet me. In the last years, I organized several conferences, the biggest one was Stochastic Analysis and Applications Mongolia 2015 (link).

Talk at research seminar probability theory at TU Munich

Just came back from a Study Group at a German manufacturing company. Our team used simulated annealing to find a more efficient distribution of individual components in the company's warehouse. We predict a 15-20 percent reduction in picking times. The company will implement our proposed distribution in the forthcoming months and we will hopefully know more on the experimental results in 6-8 months.
