Short CV

Christian Bick received his Diplom in mathematics from Georg-August-Universität Göttingen (Germany) in 2008. After a year at the University of California, San Diego (USA), he completed his PhD work at the Max-Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization in Göttingen to obtain his doctorate in mathematics from Georg-August-Universität Göttingen in 2012. After a postdoctoral appointment at Rice University (USA) in 2013-2014, he came to the University of Exeter (UK) as a Marie Curie Fellow (IEF) in 2015. He joined the faculty of the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford (UK) in 2016 before moving back to Exeter for his current appointment in 2018.
