Stephan Huckemann received his degree in mathematics from the University of Giessen (Germany) in 1987. He was a visting lecturer and scholar at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor (1987 - 1989) and a postdoctoral research fellow at the ETH Zürich, Switzerland (1989 - 1990). He then worked as a commercial software developer (1990 - 2001) and returned to academia as a contributor to the computer algebra system MuPAD at Sciface Software and the University of Paderborn, Germany (2001 - 2003). Working with H. Ziezold (2004 - 2006, Univ. of Kassel), P. Mihailescu (2007, Univ. of Göttingen), P.T. Kim (2009, Univ. of Guelph, Canada)  and A. Munk (2007 - 2010, Univ. of Göttingen) he completed his Habilitation at the Univ. of Göttingen (Germany) in 2010 and was awarded a DFG Heisenberg research fellowship. As such he continued at the Institute for Mathematical Stochastics, Univ. of Göttingen while being a research group leader at the Statistical and Applied Mathematical Sciences Institute (2010/11 SAMSI, Durham, NC, USA). After substituting (2012 - 2013) for the Chair of Stochastics and Applications at the Univ. of Göttingen he holds the new Chair for Non-Euclidean Statistics.
