David Campbell, Boston University

A leader in the field of nonlinear science, David Campbell is professor of physics, electrical and computer engineering, and of materials science and engineering at Boston University. He co-founded and directed the Center for Nonlinear Studies at Los Alamos National Laboratory and was professor and head of physics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. At Boston he has served as Dean of the College of Engineering and as University Provost. His current research centers on the theoretical studies of localized nonlinear excitations, in particular in strongly correlated electronic materials and ultra-cold atoms. A fellow of the AAAS and the American Physical Society, he is recipient of the 2010 APS Lilienfeld Prize and of the 2014 Gauss Professorship of the Academy of Sciences in Göttingen. He is the founding editor-in-chief of Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science. Source
