Bernd Otto Stratmann took over a professorship for Pure Mathematics in the Faculty of Mathematics / Computer Science in April 2010.
Stratmann studied mathematics in Göttingen and received his doctorate there in 1992 on "Finer Structures of Grenzpunktmengen Kleinscher Gruppen". He used the work on his dissertation for research stays, including Warwick (UK) and Trieste (I). After receiving his doctorate, he received a DFG habilitation scholarship. In addition, Stratmann was a research associate in the Collaborative Research Center for "Geometry and Analysis" at the University of Göttingen from 1992 to 1997. Since 1997, he has worked as a "permanent lecturer" at the University of St. Andrews (Scotland) until he received the call to Bremen.
Stratmann's research interests are broad: Complex dynamics, Kleinian groups, Riemann surfaces, Teichmüller theory, elementary number theory, fractal geometry. In Bremen, Stratmann and his colleagues plan to set up an international research group on dynamic systems, conformal analysis and dynamics and dynamic geometry.
