Michael Lawrence Klein (born March 13, 1940 in London, England)

Klein obtained a B.Sc. from the University of Bristol in 1961, followed by a Ph.D. in 1964. He was a researcher at the National Research Council 1968-1987, and joined the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania in 1987.

Klein's research in computational chemistry, particularly statistical mechanics, intermolecular interactions, and modelling of condensed phases and biophysical systems, is among the most highly cited in the field.[4] He received the Aneesur Rahman prize in 1999, which is the highest honor given by the American Physical Society for work in computational physics, and was elected to the United States National Academy of Sciences in 2009.[5]
