Thomas Küchelmann

Dipl. math. Thomas Küchelmann, Neurocognition and Action Group; PhD student at faculty of Psychology and Sports ScienceHe did his diploma at Bielefeld University in numerical mathematics in the field of invariant subspaces of quadratic eigenvalue problems. As an assistant teacher at faculty of mathematics he has mentored and provided advice to students for three years. In cooperation with linguists he was engaged in the eHumanities desktop, a web-based working environment for the humanities in computer science, working upon linguistic networks and commenting the Patrologia Latina, a collection of ecclesiastical writings published by Jacques-Paul Migne between 1841 and 1855. His interest and expertise in complex networks, mathematics and chess merge in CEEGE.



Paola TorchePaola Carolina Torche, B.Sc., student assistant; graduate in physics with focus on theoretical and computational physics from the University of Barcelona.She did her bachelor project at Lund University, Sweden, in the field of post-processing of one-dimensional signals from optical DNA mapping. She worked several years as a student assistant in Barcelona and also in Lund for some months after completing her bachelor project. She is at the present a Master student of Computer Science applied to Natural Sciences at Bielefeld University.
