Gustav Feichtinger ist Professor Emeritus for Operations Research at the Vienna University of Technology. He is Member of the Research Group ORCOS (Operations Research and Control Systems). Moreover, he leads the Research Unit 'Population Economics' at the Vienna Institute of Demography of the Austrian Academy of Sciences. He is a graduate in mathematics and physics of the University of Vienna. His habilitation in statistics and demography is from the University of Bonn. His current research activities are concerned with applications of optimal control and dynamic games in economics. He is particularly interested in nonlinear dynamical systems arising in population dynamics and economics. During the last twenty years he worked in the economic of 'deviant' behavior (illicit drug consumption, corruption, violence and international terrorism), social interactions (e.g. housing) and epidemiology (HIV/AIDS; COVID).

The Wittgenstein Centre aspires to be a world leader in the advancement of demographic methods and their application to the analysis of human capital and population dynamics. In assessing the effects of these forces on long-term human well-being, we combine scientific excellence in a multidisciplinary context with relevance to a global audience. It is a collaboration among the Austrian Academy of Sciences (ÖAW), the International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis (IIASA) and the University of Vienna.
