Dr Bartomeu Monserrat has received the prestigious James Clerk Maxwell Medal and Prize from the Institute of Physics (IOP) for his outstanding early-career contributions to theoretical physics, specifically in recognition of his exceptional contributions to the development of computational techniques that bring temperature to modern electronic structure methods, and their application to topological materials, photovoltaics, superconductors and planetary physics.  

Bartomeu is the Gianna Angelopoulos Lecturer in Computational Materials Science at the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy and a Winton Fellow at the Cavendish Laboratory . His research focus is on quantum mechanics, which is the theory that allows us to understand the behaviour of the basic building blocks of nature, such as electrons or atoms.
