Klaus Frick

Professor @ Technik Buchs NTB

Prof. Dr. Klaus Frick was born in 1980 in Bludenz (Austria) and studied Mathematics and Physics at the University of Innsbruck. During his Diploma-Thesis 2004 he made first contact with mathematics challenges in industrial contexts as he worked on a geometrical tolerance CAD system for the German transmission supplier Getrag Ford Transmission in Cologne. He continued his stay in Innsbruck and did a PhD in the field of convex analysis and partial differential equations with applications in mathematical image processing in the group of Prof. Dr. Otmar Scherzer. Between 2008 and 2013 he held a postdoctoral position at the Institute for Mathematical Stochastics at the University of Göttingen where he was primarily engaged in research projects at the interface of optimization and mathematical statistics. Among others, his theoretical findings paved way to locally adaptive image filters for confocal fluorescence microscopy recordings. Since 2013 Frick is a lecturer for mathematics and physics at the Interstate University of applied sciences of technology NTB in Buchs. Aside to giving lectures in the bachelor and masters studies, he is engaged in research projects in cooperation with the local industry with a focus on the combination of physical modelling and data science approaches.
