Stefan Schmatz was born in 1968 in Kassel, Germany. He obtained his Diplomas in chemistry (1993) and physics (1995) from the University of Goettingen, Germany. After obtaining his Ph.D. degree in theoretical chemistry (1997) with Professor P. Botschwina and Professor J. Troe, he spent two years as an Honorary Research Fellow with Professor D. C. Clary at University College London. He finished his Habilitation degree in 2002 with a thesis on nucleophilic substitution reactions, and he is now a Professor for physical and theoretical chemistry at the University of Goettingen. His research interests include quantum reaction dynamics, reaction mechanisms in inorganic and organic chemistry, and theoretical molecular spectroscopy, in particular intramolecular dynamics and vibrational spectroscopy.
