Kavli Institute for Cosmology, Cambridge

Roberto Maiolino awarded the Royal Society Research Professorship

The Kavli Institute is delighted to announce that Professor Roberto Maiolino, a previous Director of the Kavli Institute for Cosmology and Professor of Experimental Astrophysics, University of Cambridge has been elected as member of The Royal Society.

Professor Maiolino studies the formation of galaxies using observations collected at some of the largest ground-based and space telescopes. He has obtained key results on the interplay between the evolution of galaxies and the supermassive black holes at their centres. He has also investigated the enrichment of chemical elements across the cosmic epochs, as well as the origin and nature of dust particles in the early Universe.

He said: “I am truly honoured by such a prestigious appointment. Being a Fellow of the Royal Society will certainly foster my research activities and will allow me to further promote exciting, cutting-edge projects.”
