Professor Anne-Christine Davis, from the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, has been awarded an OBE in the King's Birthday Honours list published in June 2024.

The UK's national honours system celebrates and recognises the extraordinary contributions of individuals across the UK, from all sectors. Professor Davis's OBE is awarded in recognition of her services to Higher Education and to Scientific Research.

Anne-Christine Davis is Professor Emerita of Mathematical Physics in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics. Her research is in the area of theoretical cosmology, and she was awarded the 2021 Buchalter Cosmology Prize. She was the first female professor appointed in the Faculty of Mathematics, and has been a tireless University Gender Equality Champion for STEMM subjects. 

"I am amazed and overwhelmed to receive this honour," said Professor Davis on the award of her OBE. "I could not have done it alone and wish to thank my wonderful students and collaborators over the years. I would like to dedicate this honour to those women in STEMM who came before me and did not receive the recognition they deserved."
