Oxford Mathematics Visiting Professor Michael Duff awarded the Paul Dirac Medal and Prize

Professor Michael Duff of Imperial College London and Visiting Professor here in the Mathematical Institute in Oxford has been awarded the Dirac Medal and Prize for 2017 by the Institute of Physics for “sustained groundbreaking contributions to theoretical physics including the discovery of Weyl anomalies, for having pioneered Kaluza-Klein supergravity, and for recognising that superstrings in 10 dimensions are merely a special case of p-branes in an 11-dimensional M-theory.”

Michael Duff holds a Leverhulme Emeritus Fellowship, is a Fellow of the Royal Society, the American Physical Society and the Institute of Physics and was awarded the 2004 Meeting Gold Medal, El Colegio Nacional, Mexico.
