Stefan Kebekus, born in 1970, is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Freiburg. His research interests lie in Complex Geometry, a branch of Pure Mathematics with connections to Number Theory, Cryptography, Theoretical Physis, and many other fields.

Kebekus studied Mathematics at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum (Germany) and also obtained his PhD there in 1996. Subsequent to his studies, he was Scientific Assistant at the University of Bayreuth (Germany), Guest Researcher at Kyoto University (Japan), Visiting Professor at the University of Washington in Seattle (U.S.A.), Professeur Invite at Strasbourg, Grenoble and Rennes, and Heisenberg-fellow of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German National Science Foundation). He obtained his Habilitation in 2001 from the University of Bayreuth. From 2003-2008, Kebekus was Professor of Mathematics the University of Cologne (Germany). He moved to Freiburg in 2008. Kebekus is an editor of the journal „Algebraic Geomety“. He is currently vice director of Freiburg's Research Training Group „Cohomological Methods in Geometry“. From 2006 to 2008, Kebekus was director of the Research Training Group „Global Structures in Geometry and Analysis“. He was a member of the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute in Berkeley (U.S.A.) in 2009.

As part of his Fellowship, Stefan Kebekus is working on the project Rational Points, Rational Curves and Automorphisms of Special Varieties, together with his collaborators Carlo Gasbarri et Gianluca Pacienza.
