CV 
Stephan Huckemann received his degree in mathematics from the University of Giessen (Germany) in 1987. He was a visting lecturer and scholar at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (1987  1989) and a postdoctoral research fellow at the ETH Zürich, Switzerland (1989  1990). He then worked as a commercial software developer (1990  2001) and returned to academia as a contributor to the computer algebra system MuPAD at Sciface Software and the University of Paderborn, Germany (2001  2003). Working with H. Ziezold (2004  2006, Univ. of Kassel), P. Mihailescu (2007, Univ. of Göttingen), P.T. Kim (2009, Univ. of Guelph, Canada) and A. Munk (2007  2010, Univ. of Göttingen) he completed his Habilitation at the Univ. of Göttingen (Germany) in 2010 and was awarded a DFG Heisenberg research fellowship. As such he continued at the Institute for Mathematical Stochastics, Univ. of Göttingen while being a research group leader at the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (2010/11 SAMSI, Durham, NC, USA). After substituting (2012  2013) for the Chair of Stochastics and Applications at the Univ. of Göttingen he holds the new Chair for NonEuclidean Statistics.
