Director of the Isaac Newton Institute
N.M Rothschild & Sons Professor of Mathematical Sciences
Ulrike Tillmann is the director of the Isaac Newton Institute at the University of Cambridge and N.M Rothschild & Sons Professor of Mathematical Sciences.
Ulrike works broadly in topology, K-theory, and non-commutative geometry. Her work on the moduli spaces of Riemann surfaces and manifolds of higher dimensions has been inspired by problems in quantum physics and string theory. More recently much of her work has been motivated by problems in data science. Ulrike has been awarded both the Whitehead Prize by the LMS and the Bessel Preis by the Humboldt Society for her work.
Ulrike is a fellow of the Royal Society, a member of the Leopoldina, an inaugural fellow of the American Mathematical Society and of the Alan Turing Institute. She serves on the scientific boards of several international institutions included in the Fields Institute and the Austrian Science Foundation. She is the president of the London Mathematical Society and a vice-president of the International Mathematical Union.
