The Austrian Association of Women in Mathematics put the spotlight on Victoria Hutterer for her interview on “kids and career”. For the transcript of her interview, please click the link.
Thirteenth Internal SFB Meeting
The 13th Internal SFB Meeting took place between 12-15 February in Villa Sonnwend, Roßleiten, Austria. It was an action-packed event featuring notable talks from members, as well as memorable debuts from external and international participants from realms as far flung as Finland.
In addition to the talks, there was a free afternoon on Tuesday 14 February which coincided with Valentine’s Day.
The newest addition to our team: Stefanie Reiter
The SFB team welcomes its newest member Stefanie Reiter to its ranks. Stefanie had previously completed her bachelor’s and master’s studies at the University of Vienna’s Department of Astrophysics where she had worked on studying dust dynamics in planetary systems.
“I am currently working as a PhD student at the Department of Astrophysics at the University of Vienna on the research project “Interdisciplinary Advances in Extragalactic Archaeology”, which works towards the aim of identifying specific events in the formation histories of nearby galaxies, using orbit-based dynamical modelling in combination with stellar population labels, as certain quantities are approximately conserved during a galaxy’s evolution. For this project, I am working on applying new uncertainty quantification methods for the models and including additional stellar population labels”.
SFB PI Monika Ritsch-Marte Guest Fellow at UCLA
Professor Monika Ritsch-Marte is currently an invited guest fellow at the University of California Los Angeles’ (UCLA) Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) from 12 September 2022 to 16 December 2022 for its Autumn 2022 programme on Computational Microscopy.

Twelfth Internal SFB Meeting
The Twelfth Internal SFB Member Meeting took place between 4-7 December 2022 in the Obergurgl Universitätszentrum in Tyrol, Austria. Participants, both internal and external, were treated to a wealth of talks, both concerning progress within the various Tomography Across the Scales subprojects, and also from our external guests, who presented their related research.
Beyond the presentations and collaborative discussions, many members also took the opportunity to ski and hike, for which there were plentiful opportunities in the nearby vicinity.
SFB Members at the RICAM Special Semester – Workshop 5
The Special Semester on “Tomography Across the Scales” concluded with its final workshop on “Inverse Problems in Large Scales” and spanned the interval between 28 November – 2 December 2022.
There, SFB member Fabian Hinterer gave a talk on “a projected Nesterov-Kaczmarz approach to stellar population distribution reconstruction in Extragalactic Archaeology” in the presence of experts spanning the various mathematical branches that are connected to inverse problems. Other SFB members were also participants, including organisers Otmar Scherzer and Ronny Ramlau, as well as Peter Elbau, Michael Quellmalz, Ekaterina Sherina, Simon Hubmer and Kemal Raik.
We would once again like to thank the organisers for their hospitality and providing the platform for experts in the area to share and exchange ideas.
Kemal Raik is the new Scientific Project Coordinator
The SFB team welcomes new team member Kemal Raik as its latest addition. He will function as the scientific project coordinator and will be responsible for organisational as well as administrative elements of the project. Kemal Raik, now at the University of Vienna’s Computational Science Centre, had previously been employed at the Industrial Mathematics Institute of the Johannes Kepler University Linz and brings with him his expertise on inverse problems and regularisation theory. We look forward to fruitful collaborations and working together with him.
SFB Members at the RICAM – Special Semester
From 10th to 21st of October, the first two workshop-weeks of the RICAM Special Semester “Tomography across the Scales” took place at the Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics in Linz. There, Fabian Hinterer, Simon Hubmer, Michael Quellmalz, Ekaterina Sherina and Leopold Veselka, all members of the mathematical subprojects within the SFB project, were invited to present their latest scientific advances to an audience of experts in the various fields of Inverse Problems.
Furthermore, the members got the chance to exchange ideas with other researchers and to benefit from external input.
We express our gratitude to the organizers for the invitation and the hospitality during these perfectly organized workshops!
SFB at the RICAM – Special Semester
Currently, the autumn school as part of the Special Semester “Tomography Across the Scales” takes places at the RICAM in Linz. Peter Elbau, one of our project leaders, was invited to give an introductory lecture on the mathematics behind optical coherence tomography. The audience, including several members of SFB, warmly welcomed the intuitive and very well presented lecture on this highly complex topic.
SFB Member Meeting in Gmunden
From 26th to 29th of September 2022, the SFB members and project associates met in person for the Fifth SFB Member Meeting, which took place at the “Hois’n Wirt” Hotel in Gmunden. This was the first member meeting held in the second funding period of the SFB project and also the first one after covid-19 restrictions. All participants had a chance to present and discuss their work and broader research interests related to their sub-projects in a casual atmosphere. The members enjoyed the enlightening variety of topics reflected in the event program, fruitful interdisciplinary collaboration discussions and a hike up Grünberg and Laudachsee.
A big thanks to all members for their active participation and also to the member speaker Ekaterina Sherina for organizing this event!
