Niclas Technau

Greetings, dear reader!

Currently I am visiting scholar, supported by a Schrödinger fellowship of the Austrian Science Fund,

  • at the University of Madison-Wisconsin, in the group of Prof. Andreas Seeger,
    (October 2020 through September 2021)

  • at the California Institute of Technology, in the group of Prof. Maksym Radziwill,
    (planned October 2021 through September 2022) and

  • at the Graz University of Technology, in the group of Prof. Christoph Aistleitner
    (planned October 2022 through September 2023).

Until recently, I was a postdoctoral fellow at Tel Aviv University, in the group of Prof. Zeév Rudnick. Previously, I worked at the University of York (UK), with Prof. Victor Beresnevich & Prof. Sanju Velani, as a postdoctoral fellow after completing my PhD at Graz University of Technology (Austria) under the guidance of Prof. Robert Tichy.

My research interests are rooted in number theory, in a broad sense, and its interface with mathematical physics.

Conceptually speaking, I am a mixture of a theory-builder and a problem-solver. My research includes the following three topics:

  1. fine-scale statistics (e.g. the Poissonian pair correlation property) of sequences arising in quantum chaos,

  2. diophantine approximation, and

  3. lattice point problems.

Typically, I use techniques from analytic number theory, harmonic analysis, diophantine approximation, and the geometry of numbers.

However, I am always happy and eager to learn new mathematics.
