Scientists of Szeged: an interdisciplinary mathematician |  He will find the day

In our series of articles on the world of Szeged, we introduce people with connections to Szeged and who work in some branch of science. In this week's episode, we feature the life of mathematician Gergely Rust, Head of the Department of Applied and Numerical Mathematics at SZTE, and Professional Head of the National Laboratory for Health Safety.

Gergely Rust, Associate Professor at the Bolyai Institute at the University of Szeged.

His professional path

Gergely Rust was born on December 31, 1977 in Nagykanizsa. He was already attracted to mathematics in his hometown, Nagykanizsa, when he was a primary school student, but in addition to that, he also dealt a lot with physics and chemistry. After graduating from high school, he continued his studies at the University of Szeged. He defended his PhD on the topic of nonlinear functional differential equations in January 2006, and from 2006 he became a postdoctoral researcher at York University in Toronto for two years.

He returned to Szeged in September 2007 and, after receiving support from the European Research Council, in 2010 organized the first research group in mathematical epidemiology in Hungary, the MTA-SZTE Stochastic Analysis and Research Group. In 2011, he became a guest scholar at Arizona State University on a Fulbright grant, and then worked as a research associate at the University of Oxford on a Marie Curie grant. Between 2017 and 2019, he worked as a researcher at the University of Oxford.

Since November 2022, he has been Associate Professor and Head of a Research Group at the Bole Institute of the University of Szeged. His international recognition is demonstrated by being editor-in-chief of seven scientific journals, a plenary speaker at several foreign conferences, and in 2018 he was elected a member of the European Youth Academy in Barcelona.
