Visiting Scholars



Visiting scholars come to REAL from all over the world under various financial support schemes. During their stay at REAL they have the opportunity to exchange and discuss research views with REAL and University of Illinois faculty and students, which often leads to a joint publication of academic papers. In addition, at REAL faculty and students present their research in a weekly REAL seminar and visiting scholars are fervently invited to take part in it.

Below is a list of Visiting scholars profile and contact information, by alphabetical order of their first names.
