C. PEER REVIEW ACTIVITIES

  • Upon invitation, I took part in the EPSRC Mathematics Prioritisation Panel am 03 March 2011 as a scientific member of the selection committee. The EPSRC Mathematics Prioritisation Panel meets quarteryearly to review funding applications for the area of mathematics. The scientific members of the EPSRC Mathematics Prioritisation Panel change with every meeting and are invited separately for each meeting. (EPSRC = Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council)

  • I have written an EPSRC Peer Review for a first grant proposal in 2008. Furthermore, I have provided referee reports for the following journals or conference proceedings:
    • Applied Mathematics and Computation
    • Advances in Computational Mathematics
    • Constructive Approximation
    • Journal of Approximation Theory
    • Journal of Complexity
