Veljko Zlatic, Retired, Institute of Physics, Zagreb,Rene Monnier, Adjunct Professor (retired), Department of Physics, ETH Zurich
Born in 1945, Veljko Zlatic studied physics in Zagreb and obtained his first degree from Zagreb University in 1969. From 1970 to 1974 he studied theoretical physics at Imperial College and obtained his PhD. He taught many body physics at Zagreb University from 1974 to 1999. He was Humboldt Fellow at Frankfurt University in 1980/81 and Berlin University in 1989, Visiting Fellow at Oxford University in 1993/1994, and Visiting Professor at Georgetown University 1996/97 and 2006/07. He retired as a Senior Scientist from the Institute of Physics in 2010. His main research interest is the theoretical description of strongly correlated materials.
Born in 1946, Rene Monnier obtained his Diploma in Physics with honours from the University of Neuchatel in 1970. He was a Visiting Fellow at Cornell University from January 1971 to July 1972, after which he returned to Neuchatel, where he defended his thesis in April 1974. From October 1975 to July 1977 he was a postdoctoral fellow at Nordita, in Copenhagen. He joined ETH in October 1977 and was awarded the Professor title in 2000. His field of research is condensed matter theory, and his main interests lie in the study of the electronic structure and properties of random alloys and their surfaces, exotic compounds and strongly correlated systems. He has taught graduate courses on these subjects as well as introductory physics to students in engineering and in the life sciences.
