Fariba Fayazi

Ms. Fariba Fayazi from the Qom University, Iran is a guest researcher at the University of Applied Sciences in Mannheim from the 1st of October 2019 till the end of February 2020 "I'm Fariba, I teach mathematics at the Qom University in Iran. I'm working on algebraic structures on gene codes. It's fantastic that I found your university to work professionaly with Prof. Dr. Fimmel and Prof. Dr. Strüngmann on the biological coding structures."

Dr. Gabor Braun

In September 2018 Dr. Gabor Braun from the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta (USA) has been visiting the University of Applied Sciences in Mannheim for three weeks. In particular, Dr. Braun was a guest of our competence center cammbio where he mainly worked together with Prof. Dr. Lutz Strüngmann. As part of a project on the development of new cryptographic algorithms which is supported by the Vector foundation (see link) they were especially interested in a new approach relating infinite set-theory to cryptography. Dr. Braun is an expert in commutative group theory and also in the application of set-theoretic methods to it. He graduated at the Eötvös Lorand University of Budapest (Hungary) and obtained his PhD. In 2003 at the University of Duisburg-Essen under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Rüdiger Göbel and was a post doc. at the Computer Science department of the University of Leipzig as well as at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta.

Dr. Paweł Błażej

Dr. Paweł Błażej, Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Biotechnology, University of Wroclaw has been visiting the CAMMBIO in September 2018.

Prof. Sergey V. Petoukhov

Prof. Sergey V. Petoukhov, Laureate of the State prize of the USSR, is the Chief of the Laboratory of biomechanical systems of the Mechanical Engineering Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow. From the 1st of October to the 30th of November 2017 he is a DAAD-Visiting Professor at the Competence center for algorithmical and mathematical methods in Biology, Biotechnology and Medicine at the Mannheim University of Applied Sciences. The aim of his visit is to perform research on the topic “Algebraical analysis and modeling of the noise-immunity of the genetic information from the viewpoint of the geno-logical coding” in cooperation with the Competence center members. The main purpose of the cooperation is to connect the ideas of geno-logical coding with the theory of circular genetic codes.

Professor Dr. Ekaterina Blagoveshchenskaya

Professor Dr. Ekaterina Blagoveshchenskaya is full professor for mathematics at the St. Petersburg State Polytechnical University (St. Petersburg, Russia) and specialized in algebra with a strong focus on the theory of commutative groups. Her long and fruitfull cooperation with Professor Dr. Lutz Strüngmann from cammbio will now be continued in summer 2018 with a three months visit at the HS Mannheim. Prof. Blagoveshchenskaya and Prof. Strüngmann will be working on a project supported by the DAAD that deals with the direct decomposition theory of torsion-free abelian groups and their relation to parallel algorithms.
