Symposium in honour of Professor Jochen Wambach

Tribute to Jochen Wambach
This Symposium pays tribute to Jochen Wambach's contributions to science and ECT*

FBK – ECT* online event

Strada delle Tabarelle 286, Trento

Jochen Wambach was the director of ECT* from 2016 to 2021. He managed to secure the continuation of the funding of the Centre in a demanding period, facing a situation with reduced financial resources, and numerous implications due to the Covid pandemic, and at the same time he succeeded in maintaining ECT*’s high scientific profile. This Symposium pays tribute to Jochen Wambach’s contributions to science and ECT*.

Jochen Wambach received his Diploma and his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Bonn. After having held postdoctoral positions in Stony Brook and Jülich, he joined the Faculty of Physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. He returned to Germany as a Full Professor at the University of Darmstadt, where he is now a retired University Professor.

His research spans a wide area in Theoretical Physics, ranging from Nuclear Structure and Astrophysics to Hadron Physics, Relativistic Heavy-Ion Collisions, and Condensed-Matter Physics.
