Kremer, Prof. Kurt

Kurt Kremer joined the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research in September of 1995, heading the newly established theory group. After studying physics he received his PhD in 1983 under the supervision of Prof. Binder. He performed computer simulations for dynamic and static properties of polymers in bulk and near surfaces. He moved for a post-doctoral stay to Exxon Research and Engineering Corporation, Annandale, New Jersey, USA, working on polymers and on charge stabilized colloids in collaboration with Drs. Grest, Pincus, and others. Being back in Germany he obtained his Habilitation in 1988 at the University of Mainz and joined the solid state laboratory of the KFA Jülich as senior scientific staff. He spent several extended visits as visiting professor/scientist at Exxon Research, UC Santa Barbara, University of Minnesota and New York University. Kurt Kremer received several awards and recognitions and is member of the German National Academy of Science, Leopoldina.
