# Francesco Mezzadri

**Francesco Mezzadri** is an Italian mathematical physicist.

Mezzadri earned his Laureate Degree from the University of Parma and received his PhD from the University of Bristol with Jonathan Keating in 1999 (Boundary Conditions for Torus Maps and Spectral Statistics). He is a professor in Bristol.

He deals with the theory of random matrices (including the connection with the quantum entropy of spin chains), quantum chaos and statistical mechanics.

In 2018 he received the Fröhlich Prize .
