|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.
