Early life and educationEdit

Rempe-Gillen earned his Master of Arts degree in mathematics from State University of New York at Stony Brook in 2000 and his doctorate in at the University of Kiel in Germany.


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]
