Tom Imbo's Group receives monetary gift from Dr. Mark Mueller of Grantham, Mayo, Van Otterloo and Company
The Mathematical Physics Research Group of Professor Tom Imbo has recently received a substantial monetary gift from Dr. Mark Mueller of Grantham, Mayo, Van Otterloo and Company (GMO) in Boston. Dr. Mueller obtained his Ph.D. in high energy theory from Stanford University in 1984 and worked several years as postdoctoral research associate in string theory before leaving physics for the world of quantitative finance in 1994. Dr. Mueller has been a regular visitor (and contributor) to the mathematical physics group at UIC since 2001. In Fall 2005 he became an adjunct professor in the Department of Physics at UIC, and in Fall 2006 became a member of the UIC Board of Visitors.
