Dr Thierry Dauxois is a theoretical physicist and Director of Research of the Laboratoire de Physique at l’Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon. We talk to him about his career, his work on long-range interacting systems and internal gravity waves and what it is he finds so appealing about the topics he studies.
This week’s Image of the Week comes from a recent JPhysA paper, Dynamics of trapped interacting vortices in Bose–Einstein condensates: a role of breathing degree of freedom. Researchers from National University of Uzbekistan, Osaka City University, Turin Polytechnic University in… Read More ›

Physics, Art, Mathematics, Science: Hidden Connections. A conference marking Sir Michael Berry’s 75th Birthday
Insights from ‘Physics, Art, Mathematics, Science: Hidden Connections. A conference marking Sir Michael Berry’s 75th Birthday’.
Paul Hardaker, CEO: “We know well that science benefits the economy and creates jobs. If we are to see these benefits continue to grow we need to remain competitive in funding, and both the UK and Ireland need to be the places where physicists can do world-class science.”
We chat with Dr Jyrki Piilo about his work, his advice for a younger generation of scientists and reggae.
