Gregory Ezra was born in London, England, in 1953. He received his undergraduate and graduate degrees in Chemistry from Oxford University. After obtaining his D.Phil. in 1980 with P. W. Atkins, he went to the University of Chicago as a NATO Postdoctoral Fellow to work with R. S. Berry. In 1982 he joined the Chemistry Department at Cornell University, where he is now Professor. Dr. Ezra has received Sloan and Dreyfus fellowships, and in 1988 was awarded the Medal of the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Science. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society. Dr. Ezra has served on the editorial boards of the Journal of Nonlinear Science and the Journal of Mathematical Chemistry, and is currently on the board of the open access journal Advances in Physical Chemistry. He is a member of the graduate field of Applied Mathematics at Cornell.

Dr. Ezra's research covers many aspects of dynamics in chemistry and physics. He is interested in the role of symmetry in physical problems, in classical, semiclassical and quantum approaches to atomic and molecular systems, and in geometrical aspects of Hamiltonian and non-Hamiltonian dynamics.
