Michael Weinert received a BA in Physics and Mathematics from Northwestern University (1976), a ScM (1977) from Brown University, and a PhD in Physics (1982) from Northwestern University. He was a member of the Condensed Matter Theory Group at Brookhaven National Laboratory from 1982 to 2001, and was a Visiting Scientist at the KFA-Juelich (1986-7) and a Visiting Professor at the University of Vienna (2010).
Since 2001 Professor Weinert has been at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where he is a Distinguished Professor and Director of the Laboratory for Surface Studies. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and of the Institute of Physics (U.K.), and previously was an Associate Editor of Physical Review B.
Further information regarding his research, including publications, can be found on the electronic structure group website.
