Have a look at our MOOC on
Statistical Mechanics:
Algorithms and Computations

SMAC on Coursera


My name is Michael Hubert Köpf and I am a scientist working in the field of biophysics and soft matter. Since September 2013, I am holding a Junior Research Chair at the Department of Physics of the École Normale Supérieure, Paris, France.

Together with the main instructor Werner Krauth and my colleagues Vivien Lecomte and Alberto Rosso, I am teaching a Coursera MOOC (massive open online course) on Statistical Mechanics: Algorithms and Computations that reached tens of thousands of students in 2014. Its second edition starts in February 2015!

On this website, you can find an overview of my research and publications, stay updated about my teaching, see in which scientific events I participate, or read some of my notes on physics topics.

If you are interested in my research, have any remark, or see potential for a collaboration, please feel free to contact me.
