Dr. Jinniao Qiu

I am a post-doctor of Humboldt Universität zu Berlin since Dec. 2012. In the summer semester of 2015, I taught a course entitled "Stochastic Partial Differential Equations: Theory and Applications".  The course was started from a very short review of theory on Hilbert-Schmidt and nuclear (trace class) operators. In the winter semester, I open a seminar entitled "Mean Field Games and Mean Field Type Control" together with Professor Dr. Ulrich Horst.
