Lasse Rempe-Gillen (born 20 January 1978) is a German mathematician born in Kiel.[1] His research interests include holomorphic dynamics, function theory, continuum theory and computational complexity theory.[3] He currently holds the position of Professor for Pure Mathematics, and Deputy Head of Department[4] for REF at the University of Liverpool.[3] Rempe recorded the voiceover for a BBC feature on the art of mathematics, where he explained how certain pictures have arisen from dynamical systems.[5]


In 2012 he changed his name from Lasse Rempe to Lasse Rempe-Gillen.[citation needed]


In June 2010, Rempe was awarded a Whitehead Prize by the London Mathematical Society for his work in complex dynamics, in particular his research on the escaping set for entire functions.[6]

In 2012 he was awarded a Philip Leverhulme Prize[7]

He was elected as a member of the 2017 class of Fellows of the American Mathematical Society "for contributions to complex dynamics and function theory, and for communication of mathematical research to broader audiences".[8]
