Professor Copeland wins Rayleigh Medal and Prize

ED Professor Edmund Copeland of the University of Nottingham has won the 2013 Rayleigh Medal and Prize as awarded by the Institute of Physics.

Professor Copeland was awarded the prize for his work on particle/string cosmology from the evolution of cosmic superstrings, to the determination of the nature of Inflation in string cosmology and to constraining dynamical models of dark energy and modified gravity.

A personal note
I first met Professor Copeland back in 2005 when was at the University of Sussex. I was there studying for my masters degree. He then, in the same year moved to Nottingham to establish the Particle Theory Group.
