According to the* Mathematics Genealogy,* my academic genealogy can trace back to a lot of great mathematicians and philosophers (that has nothing to do with me though. What a shame!). Here is the complete list in case you are curious.

- Friedrich Leibniz (1597–1652) was a professor of moral philosophy within Leipzig University.
- Jakob Thomasius (1622–1684) was a German academic philosopher and jurist. He is now regarded as an important founding figure in the scholarly study of the history of philosophy
- Otto Mencke (1644–1707) was a 17th-century German philosopher and scientist. He is notable as being the founder of the very first scientific journal in Germany, established 1682, entitled: Acta Eruditorum.
- Johann Christoph Wichmannshausen (1663–1727) was a 17th-century German philologist. He is best known as part of a line of scientific genealogy stretching from Mencke to Gauss and to many other mathematicians.
- Christian August Hausen (1693–1743) was a German mathematician who is known for his research on electricity.
- Abraham Gotthelf Kästner (1719–1800) was a German mathematician and epigrammatist. He was known in his professional life for writing textbooks and compiling encyclopedias rather than for original research.
- Johann Friedrich Pfaff (1765–1825) was a German mathematician. He was described as one of Germany’s most eminent mathematicians during the 19th century.
- Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777–1855) was a German mathematician who contributed significantly to many fields, including number theory, algebra, statistics, analysis, differential geometry, geodesy, geophysics, electrostatics, astronomy, matrix theory, and optics.
- Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel (1784 –1846) was a German astronomer, mathematician. He was the first astronomer who determined reliable values for the distance from the sun to another star by the method of parallax.
- Heinrich Ferdinand Scherk (1798–1885) was a German mathematician notable for his work on minimal surfaces and the distribution of prime numbers.
- Ernst Eduard Kummer (1810–1893) was a German mathematician.
- Hermann Amandus Schwarz (1843–1921) was a German mathematician, known for his work in complex analysis.
- Leopold (Lipót) Fejér (1880–1959) was a Hungarian mathematician. He was the thesis advisor of mathematicians such as John von Neumann, Paul Erdős, George Pólya and Pál Turán.
- Marcel Riesz (1886–1969) was a Hungarian-born mathematician, known for work on summation methods, potential theory, and other parts of analysis, as well as number theory, partial differential equations, and Clifford algebras.
- Harald Cramér (1893–1985) was a Swedish mathematician, actuary, and statistician, specializing in mathematical statistics and probabilistic number theory. He was once described by John Kingman as “one of the giants of statistical theory”.
- Gunnar Blom was Porfessor in Lund University.
- Daniel Thorburn is Porfessor in Stockholm University.
- Mattias Villani Professor of Statistics at the Division of Statistics and Machine Learning at the Department of Computer and Information Science (IDA), Linköping University.
