The Distinguished Romberg Guest Professorship
With its founding in 2007 the HGS MathComp implemented the distinguished Romberg Guest Professorship. With this program the graduate school invites leading researchers working in a field relevant to the graduate school for a longer stay ( 3 - 6 months) and to participate in the study training program.
The graduate school is proud to have following Romberg professors:
2008 Prof. Hoang Xuan Phu (Vietnam Academy of Science and Technology)
2010 Prof. Dr. George C. Papanicolaou (Stanford University, USA)
2011 Prof. Andro Mikelic (University of Lyon, France)

2018 Prof. Colin Fox (University of Otago, NZ) • Romberg Visiting Scholar
2019 Prof. David J. Silvester (University of Manchester, UK) • Romberg Visiting Scholar
The guests invited via the HGS MathComp Romberg Program make substantial contributions to the study program by complementing the teaching done by the members or by disseminating their latest research results at the school.
