Biography

Martin Bohner is the Curators' Distinguished Professor of Mathematics and Statistics at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla, Missouri, USA. He received the BS (1989) and MS (1993) in Econo-mathematics and PhD (1995) from University Ulm, Germany, and MS (1992) in Applied Mathematics from San Diego State University. He was a Postdoc, sponsored by the Alexander von Humboldt-Foundation, at National University of Singapore (1997) and at San Diego State University (1998). Martin Bohner is the President of ISDE, the International Society of Difference Equations. His research interests center around differential, difference, and dynamic equations as well as their applications to economics, finance, biology, physics, and engineering. He is the author of six textbooks and more than 280 publications, Editor-in-Chief of five international journals, and Associate Editor for more than 60 international journals. His work has been cited more than 13000 times in the literature, including more than 4000 citations of his book "Dynamic Equations on Time Scales: An Introduction with Applications", co-authored with Professor Allan Peterson. Professor Bohner's honors at Missouri S&T include five Faculty Excellence Awards, one Faculty Research Award, and eight Teaching Awards. Dr. Bohner was dubbed an Honorary Knight of St. Patrick in 2006.
