Linda E. Reichl is Professor of Physics at the University of Texas at Austin. She received her Ph.D. degree at the University of Denver in 1969. She was a N.S.F. Faculty Associate at the University of Texas at Austin from 1969 to 1971. From 1971 to 1973, she was a Fulbright-Hays Research Scholar at Free University of Brussels. She became Assistant Professor of Physics at the University of Texas at Austin in 1973, Associate Professor in 1980, and Full Professor in 1988. She has served as Acting Director of the Center for Statistical Mechanics and Complex Systems since 1974.

Her research has ranged over a number of topics in statistical physics and nonlinear dynamics. They include the theory of low temperature Fermi liquids, quantum transport theory, application of linear hydrodynamics to translational and rotational Brownian motion and dielectric response, the transition to chaos in classical and quantum mechanical conservative systems and the new field of 'stochastic chaos' theory. She has published more than 100 research papers, has written three books, and has edited several books. Professor Reichl is currently the College of Natural Sciences Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. She served as Chair of the University of Texas Faculty Council 2005-06.
