R.J. Dwayne Miller named fellow of U.K.’s Royal Society

R.J. Dwayne Miller, a University Professor in the departments of chemistry and physics in the Faculty of Arts & Science, has been named a fellow of the Royal Society, the U.K.’s national academy of sciences and the oldest science academy in continuous existence. 

Miller was among 80 new fellows from around the world honoured in May for their substantial contributions to the advancement of science.

“These individuals have pushed forward the boundaries of their respective fields and had a beneficial influence on the world beyond,” Adrian Smith, president of the Royal Society, said in a statement.

Miller was recognized for his leading work on ultra-bright electron sources that made it possible to capture atomic motions at the fundamental space-time limit to imaging chemistry – one of the grand challenges in chemistry.

“Being elected to the Royal Society is the equivalent of being selected to a Walk of Fame for scientists,” Miller says. “It is an incredible honour to be considered, never mind being included in this singular group of individuals who have given us a new set of glasses with which to see the world more clearly.”
