Professor Jerry Gollub
Professor Jerry Gollub will be Leverhulme Visiting Professor at University of Cambridge
The Leverhulme Trust, a UK Foundation, has awarded a Visiting Professorship to enable Professor Jerry Gollub to visit the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics of Cambridge University. The Leverhulme Visiting Professorships are awarded to enable “outstandingly distinguished academics” to visit UK universities.
Professor Gollub will work on understanding the ways that swimming microorganisms take advantage of their fluid environment. This work will be done in collaboration with Professor Raymond Goldstein’s group there. The Visiting Professor is expected to bring special knowledge to the host institution that is not otherwise available.
Professor Gollub has also been elected to serve as an Overseas Fellow of Churchill College, a science-oriented college at Cambridge that serves as a memorial to Sir Winston Churchill. This is the same institution where Byron Drury '08, winner of a Churchill Scholarship, will reside.
