Florian Völlering

I am a Research Associate at the University of Bath, and before that PostDocs in Münster(Marcel Ortgiese), Berlin(Jochen Blath) and Göttingen(Anja Sturm). I did my Phd in Leiden and Delft with Frank Redig and Frank den Hollander.

Research Interests

In my research I am interested in many areas of probabilty theory, for example variance inequalities, coupling arguments, interacting particle systems, random walks in dynamic random environments and mathematical biology
