Professor, Head of Theoretical Physics, School of Physics at the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia.
Fellow of Australian Academy of Science.
Fellow of Australian Institute of Physics.
His research interests include a number of challenging problems in atomic , nuclear, elementary particle, solid state physics and astrophysics: violation of the fundamental symmetries (parity, time invariance), test of the theories of Grand Unification of elementary particles and their interactions, search for spatial and temporal variation of the fundamental constants in the Universe from the Big Bang to the present time (such variation is predicted by theories unifying gravity with other interactions), many-body theory and high-precision atomic calculations, quantum chaos and statistical theory, high-temperature superconductivity, mesoscopic systems and conductance quantization.
