6. Lecturers
Harald Löwe, PhD, Apl. Professor, Technical University of Braunschweig. Harald Löwe received his Diploma and PhD degree in mathematics from the Technical University of Braunschweig. Since his “Habilitation” in 2001, he is working as a professor at the department of Mathematics of the TU Braunschweig. Currently, he is concerned with projects in mathematics with schools. His field of research is geometry and its applications.

Zexiang Li, PhD, Professor, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Zexiang Li received his BS degree in electrical engineering and economics (with honors) from CMU, MA degree in mathematics and PhD degree in electrical engineering and computer science from UC Berkeley. He worked as a research scientist in the AI Lab of MIT and as an assistant professor in the Robotics Lab of NYU before returning to China. He is now a professor at the ECE Dept. of HKUST, and the director of the Automation Technology Center. He co-founded several robotic companies with his students, including Googol Tech, DJI and QKM Tech.
