Joachim Rosenthal is Professor of Applied Mathematics in the Department of Mathematics at
the University of Zürich.
From 2011-2013 he served as Chair of the
Mathematics Department
and from 2016-2020 he has been Vice Dean of the
College of Science.

He received the Diplom in Mathematics from the University of Basel in
1986 and the Ph.D. in Mathematics from Arizona State University in
1990.

From 1990 until 2004 he has been with the Department of Mathematics at the University of Notre Dame, where he has been last "The Notre Dame Chair in Applied Mathematics" and Concurrent Professor of Electrical Engineering.

In the academic year 1994/1995 he spent a sabbatical year at CWI the Center for Mathematics and Computer Science in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. During the academic year 1999/2000 he was a Guest Professor at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzerland, affiliated with the School of Computer & Communication Sciences .

His current research interests are in coding theory and cryptography. In coding theory he is interested in convolutional codes, LDPC codes and more general codes on graphs. In cryptography his main interest lies in the area of postquantum cryptography, in particular in the area of code based cryptography.

He serves currently on the editorial board of
Advances in Mathematics of Communications (AMC),
Journal of Algebra and Its Applications (JAA),
Journal of Algebra Combinatorics Discrete Structures and Applications,
International Journal of Information and Coding Theory (IJOCT).

In the past he served on the editorial boards of
SIAM Journal on Applied Algebra and Geometry (SIAGA),
Journal of Mathematical Systems, Estimation, and Control,
Linear Algebra and its Applications,
Mathematics of Control, Signals, and Systems (MCSS),
SIAM Journal on Control and Optimization,
Systems and Control Letters.

From 2004 until 2018 he has been one of two moderators of the
Information theory section of arXiv.

In August 2002 he served as the Symposium Chair of the
International Symposium on Mathematical Theory of
Networks and Systems (MTNS).

From 2020-2022 he served on the Board of Governors of
the IEEE Information Theory Society.

Currently he serves as President of
the Swiss Mathematical Society.

Joachim Rosenthal is a Fellow of
