Prof. George Haller
George Haller is Professor of Nonlinear Dynamics at ETH Zurich. He received his Ph.D. in Applied Mechanics at the California Institute of Technology in 1993. He then spent a year as a postdoc at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences at New York University, prior to joining the Division of Applied Mathematics at Brown University, in Providence, Rhode Island, as an Assistant Professor in 1994.
In 2001, Prof. Haller left Brown University as an Associate Professor to join the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he became a Professor in 2005. While still a professor at MIT, he became the first director of Morgan Stanley's Mathematical Modeling Center in Budapest, which he headed for three years till 2009. Prior to joining ETH in 2012, he worked at the Department of Mechanical Engineering at McGill University as Faculty of Engineering Distinguished Professor, serving as Department Chair till 2011.
Professor Haller is the recipient of a James Manning Assistant Professorship (1996), an Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship in Applied Mathematics (1997), an Albert Szent-Györgyi Fellowship (2003) , an ASME Special Achievement award in Applied Mechanics (2005), and an Honorary Doctorate from the Budapest University of Technology and Economics (2008). He has served on the editorials boards of the SIAM Journal for Mathematical Analysis, the Journal of Nonlinear Science, the Journal of Discrete and Continuous Dynamical Systems, and the Zeitschrift für Angewandte Mathematik und Physik (ZAMP).
