Prof M Schmidt
Smile because of snow. Bayreuth (2008)

I hold the Chair for Theoretical Physics II in the Department of Physics of the University of Bayreuth, Germany, and am a Visiting Fellow in the Theory Group at the Department of Physics of the University of Bristol, UK.

My research covers the physics of soft condensed matter, and in particular dispersions of colloidal particles and polymer solutions. Of interest are collective phenomena such as phase transitions (condensation, demixing, and freezing) and the influence of gravity, substrates, and random disorder on such phenomena. Methods to handle the Statistical Mechanics are density functional theory and computer simulations.

An experimentalist in Bayreuth who shares similar research interests is Professor Thomas Fischer.
