Theoretical Physics I - Prof. Dr. Michael Wilczek

From the fascinating self-organization of bacterial flows to large-scale flow patterns in the atmosphere — flowing matter gives rise to a wide range of intriguing phenomena. A common feature of these complex systems is the tight interplay of disorder, fluctuations and emergent order. The goal of our research is to gain a deeper understanding of a range of open problems from turbulence to active matter.

Research Topics

  • turbulence: statistical field theory, space-time structure of turbulence, particle-laden flows
  • active matter: active fluids & active particles
  • environmental flows: turbulent convection, atmospheric boundary layers, wind energy conversion


  • nonlinear dynamics & complex systems
  • nonequilibrium statistical mechanics & stochastic processes
  • high performance computing
