Gregory S. EZRA
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.
