Katharina Klioba studied industrial mathematics at Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH), Université Côte d’Azur (France), Università degli studi di Pavia (Italy), and University of Hamburg, from where she graduated in 2020. During her studies, she focused on functional and numerical analysis and their application in engineering and physics. This was underlined by B.Sc. and M.Sc. theses on PCE for uncertainty quantification of via crosstalk on conductor plates and on spectral theory for many-body localization in large quantum systems.
Since 2020, she is pursuing her PhD at TUHH in the Applied Analysis group under the supervision of Dr. habil. Christian Seifert. Her main research interest lies in approximation theory of operator semigroups. She enjoys analysing discretisation schemes for evolution equations from a functional analytic perspective to derive convergence rates. In 2022, a six-month research stay at TU Delft in the Netherlands sparked her interest for stochastic evolution equations. In collaboration with Prof. Dr. Jan van Neerven and Prof. Dr. Mark Veraar, she investigates how to quantify the temporal discretisation error of such stochastic PDEs.
