Christoph Brune is a tenure track assistant professor for computational mathematics (NWO, NDNS+) in the Department of Applied Mathematics at the University of Twente. In the group Applied Analysis and Computational Science his mentor is Prof. Stephan van Gils (chair nonlinear analysis).
In 2011-2012 he was a CAM Assistant Adjunct Professor in the Department of Mathematics at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) working together with Prof. Andrea Bertozzi and Prof. Stanley Osher on projects in inverse problems, 4D imaging/image processing, optimal transport and machine learning. Christoph taught classes and supervised Bachelor, Master and PhD students.

He earned a Ph.D. degree in applied mathematics under the supervision of Prof. Martin Burger at the University of M√ľnster. His doctoral thesis was entitled "4D imaging in tomography and optical nanoscopy". Christoph received a double diploma in mathematics and computer sciences with a topic in image processing and optimal control with PDEs under the supervision of Prof. Helmut Maurer and Prof. Xiaoyi Jiang. Current research applications range from 4d imaging in biomedicine (e.g. live microscopy and tomography) to crime modeling and atomic force microscopy in nanotechnology.
