Short CV

Prof. Mendl studied physics and mathematics at TUM. After his PhD at the LMU Munich (2012), he worked as a postdoc together with Herbert Spohn on topics of statistical physics. A Feodor Lynen fellowship from the Humboldt Foundation led him to Stanford University in 2015, where he investigated models for high-temperature superconductors using quantum Monte Carlo methods. In 2017, he was appointed Junior Professor at TU Dresden and, in 2019, as a Rudolf Mößbauer Assistant Professor at TUM.
