About Dr. Werner Krandick:
The Department of Computer Science annually hosts a distinguished lecturer in honor of the late Werner Krandick, PhD. Dr. Krandick joined Drexel University as an Assistant Professor of Mathematics and Computer Science in 2001 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2006. Dr. Krandick was an outstanding professor whose lectures were detailed and precise, allowing students to fully comprehend complicated mathematical reasoning. He received his PhD in Computer Science from Ohio State University in 1992 where he wrote his thesis, "Symbolic Methods for Polynomial Complex Root Calculation," under the supervision of his advisor, Dr. George Collins. Prior to achieving his PhD, he received his BS and MS in Mathematics respectively at Universität Freiburg in 1981 and Universität Bonn in 1987. Before working at Drexel, Dr. Krandick was a postdoctoral researcher at the Universität Paderborn in Germany, as well as the Research Institute for Symbolic Computation (RISC) in Linz, Austria where he was a Lise Meitner Fellow.
