Roberto Maiolino awarded the Royal Society Research Professorship

Published on 15/01/2021 

Professor Roberto Maiolino, Director of the Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge, has been awarded the prestigious Royal Society Research Professorship. This is the Royal Society's premier research award and "provides long term support to world-class researchers of outstanding achievement” and enables them "to focus on ambitious and original research of the highest quality”.

Professor Maiolino will investigate the earliest phases of galaxy formation and their subsequent evolution across the cosmic epochs by using the next generation of cutting-edge observing facilities. He will undertake extensive and detailed studies of distant galaxies with the ultimate goal of understanding
the mechanisms and physical processes that have driven galaxy evolution and transformation, from their earliest phases of formation to the current epoch.
