Professor David Edwards was the Head of the Mathematical Physics section from 1988 until his official retirement in 1999. He is still on the College staff as a Senior Research Investigator.

The main areas of his current research are 
 - Theory of nanomagnetism (spintronics), particularly the switching of magnetization and movement of domain walls by spin-polarized current. 
 - Theory of strongly correlated systems, including ultra-cold atoms.
