Mihaly Mezei obtained an M.S. degree (University Diploma) in chemistry from the Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest, Hungary, from 1962 to 1967, a Ph.D. degree in inorganic chemistry from the Eötvös Loránd University, in 1972, and a Postdoctoral Fellow degree from the New York University from 1974 to 1976. He works as an Associate Professor in the Department of Structural and Chemical Biology, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, since 1991. Dr. Mezei worked in the Computer Center of the Hungarian Chemical Industries from 1967 to 1972, where he focused on quantum-chemistry including studies and ab-initio calculations with the Method of Moments and extension of the Local Energy Method (Ph.D. thesis). He was an Associate Research Scientist with E.S. Campbell in quantum-chemistry in New York University from 1974 to 1976. From 1976 to 1986 he was a Senior Research Associate with D.L. Beveridge in Hunter College, CUNY. From 1986 to 1991 he worked in the Hunter College, CUNY, and was a Manager in biomolecular computing and graphics, Department of Chemistry, and a CUNY Graduate Faculty Member from 1989. Dr. Mezei served as a CUNY Graduate Faculty Member until 1999. His theoretical studies of condensed phase systems include Monte Carlo sampling developments, free-energy simulation methodology developments, general simulation methodology developments, biomolecular analysis technique developments, biomolecular simulation and modeling, free-energy simulations, liquid simulations, and statistics.
