Caption: Simon David Manton White (born 1951), British cosmologist. White has been one of the directors since 1994 of the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics, Garching, near Munich, Germany. He specialises in galaxy formation and simulations. His work includes the model shown in the background, a map of dark matter distribution known as the 'Millennium Simulation'. Produced in Garching at the Institute, this is the biggest simulation to date of the evolution of the universe from the Big Bang to the present day. White was elected Fellow of the Royal Society in 1997. He was jointly awarded the 2011 Gruber Prize in Cosmology. Photographed in 2008.
