Prof. Walter Kob, Université Montpellier, France

Prof Walter Kob

His outstanding research achievements in glass science, were obtained most notably by providing fundamental insight into the static and dynamic properties of glasses and supercooled liquids from computer simulations.

The main focus of his research is on investigating the static and dynamic characteristics of disordered systems, for instance simple fluids, structured glasses, Potts glasses or polymers, with the help of computer simulations and other statistical methods
