## Prof. Dr. Chiara Saffirio new Assistant Professor (SNFS) of Mathematical Physics

Chiara Saffirio successfully applied for a SNF Eccellenza Professorial Fellowship and began her position at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science at the beginning of August 2019.

She obtained her PhD in Mathematics in 2012 at the University of Rome (La Sapienza) and did postdoctoral research at the Institute of Mathematics at the University of Zurich and at the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics at the University of Bonn. She has been an Ambizione Fellow of the SNF at the University of Zurich since 2016. Her project at the Department of Mathematics and Computer Sciences addresses questions in kinetic theory and many-body interactions in both classical and quantum systems evolving around the theory of the Boltzmann equation.
