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.
