University, Riga. For more than 10 years, Dr. Schmidt was the lead
modeling scientist at the Latvian Center for Biological, Medical, and
Ecological Research. In the 90s, he was engaged for several years in
development of computational chemistry software and in its applications
to life sciences. His research interests include modeling "of
anything", from biological processes to financial markets. His major
fields of expertise are the statistical physics, in particular, the
theory of fluids, (poly)electrolytes and plasmas, the solvation theory
and its applications in biology, and, most recently, quantitative
finance. Dr. Schmidt is the author of the book "Statistical
thermodynamics of classical plasmas" (Energoatomizdat, Moscow, 1991),
and more than 40 publications in biophysics, statistical and chemical
physics, and econophysics. Dr. A.B. Schmidt has been a financial data
analyst since 1997.
