Three Cheers for Three Chairs!
Just a quick post to say public congratulations to three of my former colleagues in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Sussex.
My spies tell me that the following have recently been promoted to Professorial positions:
- Kathy Romer (now Professor of Astrophysics) – Kathy is principal investigator of the XMM Cluster Survey collaboration and is coordinating cluster research for the Dark Energy Survey project.
- Antony Lewis (now Professor of Cosmology) – Antony works on theoretical models of the early universe, as well as comparing observations with cosmological models, and is part of the core team analysing data from the Planck satellite.
- Jacob Dunningham (now Professor of Physics) – Jacob is Head of the Atomic Molecular & Optical (AMO) Physics group at Sussex and works on quantum mechanical entanglement spans the fields of quantum information, quantum optics, Bose-Einstein condensation, and metrology.
As former Head of School I knew these were in the system but I left before the somewhat laborious promotions process was completed, so it’s very nice to receive confirmation that they all went through.
P.S. Extra-special congratulations to Kathy, because she was born on Tyneside (i.e. not in the Midlands).Follow @telescoper
