School of Basic Sciences – March 2019

Welcome to three new SB Professors

It is my pleasure to welcome three new professors that joined our School in January and April

Juhan Aru

Juhan Aru joins the Institute of Mathematics as a tenure-track assistant professor. Juhan is a talented Estonian mathematician working in the fields of probability theory and stochastic analysis. In his research, he concentrates on Gaussian free fields and the Schramm-Loewner evolution, a single-parameter family of random planar curves.

Sofia Olhede joins the MATH institute as full professor of statistics. Sofia is an expert on stochastic modelling and statistical inference from time series, as well as spatial data analysis and data network analysis. Her work, for which she has been awarded an ERC Consolidator Grant, had a substantial influence on various fields, such as oceanography, ecology, neuroscience and finance.

Sofia Olhede – Full Professor of Statistics – April 2019

Lesya Shchutska

Lesya Shchutska joins the IPHYS institute as tenure-track assistant professor. Lesya is a highly innovative young scientist, who was awarded an ERC Starting Grant in 2017. Her research focuses on the search for physical phenomena beyond the standard model of particle physics. She is participating in the collaborative CMS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. Her work at EPFL will include helping to develop and construct the particle detectors of the future.

Lesya Shchutska -Tenure-Track Assistant Professor of High-Energy Physics – April 2019
On behalf of the whole School of Basic Sciences, I wish our new colleagues a very warm welcome to EPFL!
