Martin Hermann was born in Weimar, Germany, in 1949. After graduating in mathematics (Dipl.Math. degree) in 1972 at the Martin-Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg, Germany, and obtaining the Ph.D. degree (summa cum laude) in 1978 in numerical analysis at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena (FSU), Hermann was awarded with the Dr.rer.nat.habil. degree in 1984 from the FSU. In 1985, he was appointed as a Research Associate and Assistant Professor for numerical analysis at the FSU. Just after the German reunification, he could start in 1990 as a Visiting Professor for numerical analysis at the University of Dortmund. Since 1992, he has been a University Professor for numerical analysis at the Institute of Applied Mathematics, FSU. Hermann is mainly interested in numerical methods for boundary ODEs, bifurcation phenomena in nonlinear problems, and computational techniques for sloshing problems. He is author of 5 monographs on numerical methods and Editor of the Bulletin of Mathematical Analysis and Applications. Since 2003, Hermann has also been a Member of the Board of Trustees of the Collegium Europaeum Jenense at the FSU.
