UBC Reports | Vol. 53 | No. 7 | Jul 5, 2007


Professor Ed Perkins, Canada Research Chair in the Department of Mathematics, has been elected to the Royal Society of London. As a Fellow of UK’s national academy of science, he joins the likes of David Attenborough and Stephen Hawking.

Martin Rees, President of the Royal Society, said, “These new Fellows are at the cutting edge of science in the UK and beyond. Their achievements represent the enormous contribution science makes to society.”

Fellows are elected for their contributions to science, both in fundamental research resulting in greater understanding, and also in leading and directing scientific and technological progress in industry and research establishments.

UBC has 8 faculty members who have been elected to the body.
