Please join us at the LAS Distinguished Professor Lecture and Award Ceremony honoring Dr. Dirk K. Morr,  LAS Distinguished Professor in the department of Physics.

Dr. Dirk K. Morr’s research in the area of theoretical condensed matter physics
focuses on the evolution of complexity from the nano- to the macroscale.
Dr. Morr is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, the German Alexander
von Humboldt Foundation, and the German Academic Exchange Service.
In addition, he held the Leibniz Chair at the University of Leipzig (Germany) in
2011/12. At UIC, he received the Council for Excellence in Teaching and Learning
(CETL) teaching award and was named University Scholar in 2015. Dr. Morr has

Berlin. Dr. Morr was also a member of the task force that developed the Science
Storms exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. His public
engagements include popular science talks, in which he not only discusses the
“mysteries of the quantum world,” but also examines the relationship between
art and physics.
