Peter Ochs received the M.Sc. degree in mathematics from the Saarland
University in Germany in 2010, and the Ph.D. degree in mathematics from the
University of Freiburg in 2015. During his Ph.D., he spent three months as a
visiting researcher at TU-Graz in Austria. After a year as a postdoctoral
researcher at Saarland University in Germany, he returned to Freiburg. In
November 2017, he became Juniorprofessor of Applied Mathematics at the
University of Saarland, where he is heading the Mathematical Optimization
He received the best paper award at the Scale Space and Variational Methods
Conference (SSVM) in 2015 and at the German Conference on Pattern Recognition
(GCPR) in 2016. His research interests are in non-smooth optimization for
applications in computer vision, machine learning, image analysis, and inverse
problems in general.
