Mack joins Michigan from Philipps University of Marburg, Germany, where he was Professor of Physics. He received a Teacher of the Year Award, and is a Fellow of APS. He has graduated more than 40 PhD students, and co-authored the textbook, Semiconductor Quantum Optics. Mack joined the faculty September 2016.
Mack’s research focuses on semiconductor quantum optics, quantum optics, condensed- matter theory, terahertz spectroscopy, many-body interactions, photon correlations, coherent and ultrafast phenomena, and cluster-expansion approach (both formalism and computing). His interdisciplinary research has had an impact on engineering, physics, chemistry, and nanotechnology. Mack has written more than 100 publications, many of which have been highly cited in the literature.
