Resume

Professor Dr. Siegfried Schach (born 09.09.1936) studied mathematics and economics in Tübingen, Vienna, Frankfurt, Berlin and Minneapolis.

He then held professorships at Stanford University (1967 to 1968) and Johns Hopkins University (1968-1972).

Mr. Schach became acquainted with the statistical landscape there from the ground up through his many years of residence in the United States. He was particularly instrumental in the development of biometric and medical applications in Dortmund. Many positions in Germany in these areas are now filled by his students.

Mr. Schach declined a call to the University of Heidelberg in 1982.

From 1972 to 2001, Mr. Schach held the chair of "Mathematical Statistics and Applications I" ("Mathematical Statistics and Biometric Applications") at the Department of Statistics.

One of the landmarks of the TU Dortmund is the H-Bahn. Line 1 runs every 10 minutes between Dortmund Eichlinghofen and the Technology Center via Campus South and Dortmund University S, while Line 2 commutes every 5 minutes between Campus North and Campus South. It covers this distance in two minutes.

From Dortmund Airport, it takes just over 20 minutes to get to Dortmund Central Station by AirportExpress and from there to the university by S-Bahn. A wider range of international flight connections is offered by Düsseldorf Airport, about 60 kilometers away, which can be reached directly by S-Bahn from the university's train station.
