The Department of Physics welcomes Professor David Griffiths to Otago. Prof Griffiths has published several highly regarded textbooks, in electrodynamics, quantum mechanics and particle physics, which are widely used at universities all over the world. Recognising his successful teaching, the American Association of Physics Teachers has awarded him with the Robert A. Millikan Medal, while for his research achievements he became an Elected Fellow of the American Physical Society.
The department feels honoured that as a visiting Fulbright Scholar, Prof Griffiths will spend six weeks at Otago. During his stay he will teach particle physics in PHSI331 and also present a departmental colloquium.
