#### Biographical Review

Kurusch Ebrahimi-Fard is a Ramón y Cajal Research Fellow at the Instituto de Ciencias Matemáticas – ICMAT (Institute for mathematical research). His main research areas are algebraic combinatorics, numerical methods for (stochastic) differential equations and quantum field theory. In particular, his research has dealt with the theory of Rota-Baxter algebras and applications of combinatorial Hopf algebras in the context of perturbative renormalization as well as numerical methods for differential equations. Currently, he is particularly interested in algebraic structures of stochastic differential equations and mathematical aspects of the theory of quantum chromodynamics.

His publications include articles in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, Communications in Mathematical Physics, Foundations of Computational Mathematics, Advances in Applied Mathematics, Journal of Mathematical Chemistry, Journal of Mathematical Physics, Journal of Algebraic Combinatorics, Journal of Algebra, Annales Henri Poincaré.

Born in Germany, where he graduated in Theoretical Physics at Bonn University (Germany), Kurusch obtained his Ph.D. in Theoretical Physics from Bonn University in 2006. He also obtained a Maîtrise de Mathématiques from Université Joseph Fourier, Grenoble, France. He has held a full-time academic position at Université de Haute Alsace, Mulhouse. He covered postdoctoral positions at the Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (France), Max Planck Institute for Mathematics, Bonn (Germany) and Universidad de Zaragoza (Spain). Since 2011 he has been a Ramón y Cajal Research Fellow at ICMAT.

He was a fellow of the Studienstiftung de Deutschen Volkes, and was selected for a European Post-Doctoral Institute fellowship (EPDI). He obtained a “Juan de la Cierva 2007" fellowship (3 years), and a “Ramón y Cajal 2010" fellowship, both by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.
