Univ.Prof. Dr. Birgit Schörkhuber


Welcome to my webpage!

I am a newly appointed professor at the University of Innsbruck. My field of research is the Analysis of Partial Differential Equations, where I am particularly interested in the dynamics in nonlinear, time-dependent problems. This includes dispersive models such as nonlinear wave or Schrödinger equations,  as well as nonlinear heat flows and more complicated systems arising in theoretical physics and mathematics.  My work focuses on the rigorous analysis of the behaviour of solutions and the description of finite-time singularities.

At the Department of Mathematics I am head of the new research group "Analysis of PDEs", which is currently being established.
