Klaus-Tschira-Award for Faculty II Alumna
On 6th October the mathematician Dr. Ágnes Cseh received the "Klaus Tschira Preis für verständliche Wissenschaft" Klaus Tschira Award for Comprehensible Science). With the award the Klaus Tschira Foundation honours young scientists from the fields of biology, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, neuroscience or physics for their achievements in explaining their research to the general public.
Her winning contribution "Planning Matches" explains a mathematical model that is often used in economics and is known in research as the "problem of stable matchings". The goal is to match different partners in the best possible way. Ágnes Cseh used human dating and match-making to explain her model. In her dissertation she expanded it further and it can now be used for different compley problems.
Ágnes Cseh was born in 1988 in Hungary. She studied mathematics at Budapest University of Technology and Economics. After finishing her bachelor's degree she came to TU Berlin in 2010. In 2015, she finished her doctoral degree under Prof. Dr. Martin Skutella at the Berlin Mathematical School. Her dissertation is titled "Complexity and algorithms in matching problems under preferences“. After a postdoc stay at the Icelandic Centre of Excellence in Theoretical Computer Science in Reykjavík Ágnes Cseh is now working at the Hungarian Acadmey of Sciences in Budapest.
The Faculty II congratulates Ágnes Cseh wholeheartedly!
