In the broad light of day mathematicians check their equations and their proofs,
leaving no stone unturned in their search for rigor. But, at night, under the full moon,
they dream, they float among the stars and wonder at the miracle of heavens.
They are inspired. Without dreams there is no art, no mathematics, no life.
(Sir Michael Atiyah)
 

In August 2020 Professor Rupp was appointed Professor at the Faculty of Mathematics at the Kutaisi International University (KIU) [↑], Kutaisi, Georgia (founded 2020 and affiliated to the TU München). In May 2021 he was elected Fellow of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications [↑] (FIMA).
KIU

Cyber & Innovation Lab
Since June 2017 Professor Rupp is involved in several restructuring, transformation, and digitalization projects, e.g. as Director of the Think Tank "Cyber & Innovation Labs" (CIL), as Chief Digital Officer of RailMaint GmbH [↑], as Senior Project Manager, and later as Principal Consultant at BWI GmbH [↑]. Thanks to great support and encouragement of BWI, he was also associated to the Research Institute Code [↑] (Cyber Defence) at the Faculty of Informatics [↑] of the Universität der Bundeswehr München.

Moreover, Professor Rupp is Partner at the Institut für Angewandtes Mechanism Design (IFAMD) [↑], and Partner at Transformation Consulting International [↑].

From September 2013 to June 2017 he held a Professorship at the Department of Mathematics and Science at the German University of Technology in Oman (GUtech) [↑], Muscat, Sultanate of Oman. GUtech (founded 2007) is a private non-profit university and affiliated to the RWTH Aachen.

Durinng that time, he was also Visiting Professor at the Institute for Analysis and Scientific Computing of the TU Wien (January/ February 2015), and Visiting Professor at the Chair of Scientific Computing of TU München's Department of Informatics (June/ July 2015 & July/ August 2017). Besides others, he was coorgainzer of the exhibitions "Crystals, Forbidden Symmetries & Quasi-Crystals" (Muscat, 2014), and the first "Imaginary" exhibition on the Arabian peninsula (Muscat, 2015), see imaginary.org [↑].

TUM
January 2016 and March/ April 2013 Professor Rupp was Visiting Lecturer at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences [↑], Cape Town, South Africa. From September to December 2012 he was Visiting Assistant Professor at the Mathematical and Computer Sciences and Engineering division of the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Thuwal near Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

In 2008 he returned from a position as Management Consultant to the TU München at the Chair of Professor Dr. J. Scheurle and his research group on Dynamical Systems as Akademischer Rat a.Z. Since 2011 Professor Rupp is Vice-President of the Hurwitz-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Mathematik an der TU München e.V. [↑]

After studying Mathematics with Chemistry as minor at the TU München he completed his Doctorate (Dr. rer. nat.) in 2005 with a PhD-scholarship of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft at the Graduate School Applied Algorithmic Mathematics under the supervision of Professor Dr. J. Scheurle at the TU München.

Professor Rupp's research interests comprise stochastic dynamical systems and their stability/ bifurcations, Hamiltonian systems and (classical) molecular dynamics, applications and mathematical modeling in Chemistry, Biology, Engineering and in particular the Social Sciences, as well as the simulation of PDEs with stochastic/ random forcing or controls.
