Daniel L. Stein
Daniel L. Stein is a Professor of physics and mathematics at New York University (NYU), New York, NY, USA. From 2006 to 2012, he was the Dean of Science at NYU. Prior to that, he was a Faculty Member and the Head of Physics Department at the University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ, USA. He received a B.S. degree in physics and an A.B. degree in mathematics from Brown University, Providence, RI, USA, in 1975, an M.S. degree in physics from Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA, in 1977, and a Ph.D. degree in physics from the same university in 1979. His research is centered on the areas of theoretical condensed matter physics and mathematical statistical mechanics. It currently focuses primarily on randomness and disorder in condensed matter systems, with emphasis on magnetic materials and stochastic processes leading to rare nucleation events, particularly in mesoscopic and nanoscopic systems.
