Prof. Nick Higham awarded Royal Society Research Professorship
Six world class scientists have been awarded Royal Society Research Professorships and our own Professor Nick Higham is one of them!
Royal Society Research Professorships are the Royal Society’s premier research awards and help release the best leading researchers from teaching and administration to allow them to focus on research. These prestigious posts provide long-term support for internationally recognised scientists of exceptional accomplishments and promise.
Professor Higham’s research will develop a new generation of numerical linear algebra algorithms that exploit evolving computer architectures. The problems treated are the innermost kernels in many scientific and engineering applications, so the algorithms will be designed to be fast and numerically reliable even for the largest and most difficult problems.
