Background and activities
Gereon Quick is a professor of Mathematics at the Department of Mathematical Sciences and currently head of the Geometry & Topology group.
He has an MSc in Mathematics from University of Cambridge, UK, a DEA in Mathematics from Université Pierre et Marie Curie in Paris, France. He received his PhD and Habilitation in Mathematics from Universität Münster, Germany. As a postdoc he continued his research in Münster, at LMU München and at Harvard University in the US.
