Matthias Aschenbrenner (born 1972 in Bad Kötzting) is a German-American mathematician. He is a professor of mathematics at the University of California, Los Angeles. His research interests include differential algebra and model theory.[1]


Aschenbrenner earned hier "Vordiplom" at the University of Passau in 1996. In 2001 he received his Ph.D. from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he was a student of Lou van den Dries.[2] For his dissertation, he was awarded the 2001 Sacks Prize by the Association for Symbolic Logic.[3] In 2012, Aschenbrenner became a Fellow of the American Mathematical Society.[4] He was jointly awarded the 2018 Karp Prize with Lou van den Dries and Joris van der Hoeven "for their work in model theory, especially on asymptotic differential algebra and the model theory of transseries."[5]
