Benedict Leimkuhler holds the Chair of Applied Mathematics at Edinburgh University. He studies numerical methods for ordinary and stochastic differential equations, including methods for deep neural network training and applications in chemistry, physics and biology. Benedict has held fellowships from the Leverhulme Foundation and the Alan Turing Institute, a Bernoulli lectureship at EPFL and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Edinburgh.
Benedict has nearly three decades of experience in the management of multi-institutional grants, including leading the EPSRC’s NAIS Centre for Science and Innovation and the current EPSRC MAC-MIGS Centre for Doctoral Training. He sits on the editorial boards of the SIAM Journal of Uncertainty Quantification, the IMA Journal on Numerical Analysis and the AIMS Journals of Computational Dynamics and Foundations of Data Science.
