About

Stefan Wrzaczek studied Technical Mathematics at the Vienna University of Technology, where he joined the research group for Operations Research and Control Systems (ORCOS) in 2005. He worked in a couple of different projects related to optimal control theory, differential games, demography and health economics.

Stefan Wrzaczek joined the Wittgenstein Centre in 2016. He is particularly interested in health economics and population dynamics. His concern is to formulate complex economic and demographic behaviour as a mathematical model.
