Caption: Carlos Silvestre Frenk (born 1951), Mexican-British cosmologist. Frenk is director of the Institute for Computational Cosmology at Durham University, UK. He and his researchers use supercomputers to create models of large scale structures, from the distribution of dark matter, to simulations modelling the evolution of galaxies and clusters. In the background is a map of dark matter distribution known as the 'Millennium Simulation', the biggest simulation to date of the evolution of the universe from the Big Bang to the present day. Frenk was elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 2004. He was jointly awarded the 2011 Gruber Prize in Cosmology. Photographed in 2007.
