Univ.-Prof. Dr. Oskar PARIS

Oskar Paris received his PhD in Physics from the University of Vienna in 1996 and his teaching qualification (Habilitation) in Materials Physics from the Montanuniversität Leoben in 2003. He was a postdoc at the ETH Zurich (1996-1998), a University assistant at the Montanuniversität Leoben (1998-2003), and a research group leader at the Max-Planck-Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Potsdam (2003-2009). Since 2009 he is a full Professor of Physics at the Montanuniversität Leoben in Austria. His scientific interests are on the structure - properties relationships of functional nanomaterials, including nanoporous materials, nanoparticles and hierarchical biological- and biomimetic systems. Current research focusses on nanoporous carbons for energy storage, and more generally on fluid-solid interactions in spatial confinement. He is an internationally recognized expert for in-situ nanostructure characterization using (synchrotron radiation) X-ray and neutron scattering. Oskar Paris has co-authored about 170 peer-reviewed publications (H-index 50), he was an editorial board member of Nature Scientific Reports, and he served numerous scientific boards and committees. Academic positions include the Dean of Studies (2017-2022) and the Vice-Dean of Studies (2011-2017) at the Montanuniversität Leoben.
