Ray Goldstein elected FRS

Prof Ray Goldstein FRS

Ray Goldstein, Schlumberger Professor of Complex Physical Systems in DAMTP, has been elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society.


His citation reads: 'Raymond Goldstein is an internationally recognised leader in the fields of biological physics and nonlinear dynamics. He is distinguished for having made important mathematical contributions to those subjects as well as pioneering experimental discoveries. His broad-ranging contributions include classic work on the dynamics of pattern formation driven by long-range forces, the differential geometry of interfacial pattern formation, and the explanation for the shapes of stalactites. He has made seminal experimental contributions to the study of active matter, including developing a class of green algae as model organisms for the study of biological fluid dynamics, the physics of multicellularity, and the synchronization of eukaryotic flagella.'
