An internationally recognized mathematical physicist whose research focuses on the essential elements of string theory, Greg Moore was elected to the prestigious National Academy of Sciences. With numerous awards and prizes in the fields of mathematics and theoretical physics under his belt, his election into the academy is a natural extension of his exceptional accomplishments.
Greg is a recognized leader in the field of physical mathematics that bridges theoretical physics and pure mathematics. He is well known for the high level of mathematical rigor he has developed in the study of theories with extra quantum dimensions of space-time known as supersymmetry. Among his many accomplishments is a proposal for a new phase of topological matter that someday may form the basis for computational elements of quantum computers.
Moore has written 200+ papers on physical mathematics and string theory. He served as a general member of the Aspen Center for Physics from 2005 to 2015 and is a fellow of the American Mathematical Society. He received the 2014 Leonard Eisenbud Prize for Mathematics and Physics from the American Mathematical Society and the 2014 Dannie Heineman Prize for Mathematical Physics from the American Physical Society. In 2015, he shared the Dirac Medal from the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics with colleagues from Caltech and Yale University.
