Uwe C. Täuber is a Professor in the Physics Department at Virginia Technology. He received his diploma in 1988 and the Ph.D. degree in 1992 in condensed matter theory under the supervision of Franz Schwabl, as well as the habilitation in 1999 from the TU Munich, Germany. He spent his postdoctoral years at Harvard working with David Nelson, 1993–1995, and at Oxford with John Cardy, 1995–1997, before joining the faculty at Virginia Tech in January 1999. In 2005, he spent his first sabbatical at Orsay and Oxford. His research has evolved from the theory of structural phase transitions and the critical dynamics of magnetic systems to the statistical mechanics of flux lines in superconductors and the characterization of phase transitions in nonequilibrium systems, such as driven diffusive systems, interface growth models, active to absorbing state transitions. More recently, he has applied his expertise in analytical and numerical studies of fluctuations and correlation effects in reaction-diffusion systems to biological problems, including ligand-receptor binding kinetics and population dynamics. He has coauthored more than 60 peer-reviewed papers and reviews.
