Benjamin Peherstorfer is Assistant Professor at Courant Institute of
Mathematical Sciences since 2018. He was a Postdoctoral Associate in the
Aerospace Computational Design Laboratory (ACDL) at the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology (MIT), working with Professor Karen Willcox. He received B.S.,
M.S., and Ph.D. degrees from the Technical University of Munich (Germany) in
2008, 2010, and 2013, respectively. His Ph.D. thesis was recognized with the
Heinz-Schwaertzel prize, which is jointly awarded by three German universities
to an outstanding Ph.D. thesis in computer science. Benjamin was selected for a
Department of Energy (DoE) Early Career Award in the Applied Mathematics
Program in 2018 and for an Air Force Young Investigator Program (YIP) award in
Computational Mathematics in 2020. In 2021, Benjamin received a National
Science Foundation (NSF) CAREER award in Computational Mathematics. His
research focuses on computational methods for data- and compute-intensive
science and engineering applications, including scientific machine learning,
mathematics of data science, model reduction, and computational statistics.
