Frederic P. Schuller works on applications of differential geometry in mathematics, physics and engineering. He obtained a Master of Advanced Studies in Mathematics and a PhD in Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics from the University of Cambridge, working in Hawking’s general relativity group with G. W. Gibbons. He was subsequently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and a Researcher at the Max Planck Institute of Gravitational Physics and held temporary Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Full Professor positions of Mathematical and Theoretical Physics in several countries. For his internationally known advanced lecture courses on differential geometry, quantum mechanics and general relativity and his supervision of research students he received numerous awards, including the 2016 Ars Legendi Prize.
