Manuel Rissel

Postdoctoral Fellow at NYU Shanghai


Manuel Rissel received his undergraduate education in Mathematics at the University of Konstanz and subsequently pursued a dual Master's degree at Shanghai Jiao Tong University and the University of Konstanz. He then continued his graduate studies at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, where he completed his PhD "On the controllability of several mathematical models for incompressible magnetohydrodynamic flows" under the supervision of Professor Ya-Guang Wang. His research is concerned with questions from the analysis of partial differential equations, fluid dynamics, and mathematical control theory.
