Maximilian Janisch


I am an 18 years old PhD student at the Institute of Mathematics of the University of Zürich (I-MATH) within the Zürich Graduate School in Mathematics. My doctoral advisor is Prof. Dr. Ashkan Nikeghbali, who has a chair in Financial Mathematics at I-MATH. I am the youngest PhD student of Switzerland (and maybe also of Europe?).

My main interests within mathematics are probability theory (in particular stochastic processes, martingales and applications of probability theory in mathematical finance and machine learning), as well as partial differential equations (in particular the Euler equations in fluid dynamics).

For more information, see for instance my Homepage or this Wikipedia-Article about me (german).

About me (brief)

  • I finished the final high school exams ("Matura") in mathematics at the age of 9 years at the Gymnasium Immensee.
  • My Master's degree at the University of Zürich was obtained under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Camillo De Lellis.
  • In parallel to my doctoral studies in Zürich, I am also doing a Master's in Calcul Haute Performance at the University of Perpignan in the South of France.
