Dr. Mazo is a professor emeritus of theoretical physical chemistry at the University of Oregon. Teaching on campus from 1962 to 1996, he served as the head of the chemistry department for three years between 1978 and 1981, associate dean of the university's graduate school from 1967 to 1971 and director of the university's Institute of Theoretical Science from 1964 to 1967 and again from 1984 to 1987.

During Dr. Mazo's career at the University of Oregon, his research program was entirely theoretical. He maintains an interest in equilibrium and nonequilibrium phenomena. Recognized for developing a method of treating the transport properties of particles flowing in a layered system, where the velocities in the various layers are different and transitions between the various layers are possible, his techniques use the theory of stochastic processes. He is the author of “Statistical Mechanical Theories of Transport Processes” in 1967, “Brownian Motion” in 2002 and multiple research articles in various peer-reviewed journals. A visiting professor abroad, Dr. Mazo taught at the University Libre de Bruxelles in Belgium, Technische Hochschule of Aachen in Germany, the Weizmann Institute in Rehovoth, Israel and the University of New South Wales in Australia.

Dr. Mazo earned an undergraduate degree at Harvard University in 1952, followed by a master's degree and PhD at Yale University in 1953 and 1955, respectively. He then completed a National Science Foundation postdoctoral fellow at the University of Amsterdam, Netherlands, between 1955 and 1956. The recipient of an Alfred P. Sloan fellow from 1961 to 1965 and senior postdoctoral fellow from 1968 to 1969, he then received a Heinrich Hertz fellow in West Germany and a Meyerhoff fellow in Israel. Notably, Dr. Mazo has been cited in every edition of Who's Who in America since 1987, as well as close to 20 more editions of Who's Who in American Education, Who's Who in the East and Who's Who in the West.
