Lauritz Streck

PhD Candidate in Mathematics

I’m doing my PhD at Cambridge University under the supervision of Péter Varjú. My main interest lie in Ergodic Theory, Probability Theory, Combinatorics and Number Theory, and in particular in their interplay. The main questions I’m working on in my PhD are concerning the dimension of certain self-similar sets and measures, the so called Bernoulli convolutions. I hope to further the understanding of the dimension of general self-similar sets with my work, which is one of the major open questions in Fractal Geometry.

I completed my Master’s at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem in 2020 under the supervision of Tamar Ziegler. My master’s thesis was on prime orbits of horocycle flows, a topic touching both on homogeneous dynamics and on analytic number theory. I completed my Bachelor’s degree at the University of Bonn in 2017.
