Caption: Currently Emeritus Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford and Emeritus Fellow of Wadham College, Roger Penrose is well known for his significant contributions to mathematical physics, especially his insights concerning general relativity and cosmology. Penrose has been awarded numerous honors for his scientific contributions. In 1975, Penrose and Stephen Hawking were jointly awarded the Eddington Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society, and, in 1988, along with Stephen Hawking, he was awarded the Wolf Prize in Physics for their development of the theory of general relativity. In 1985, Penrose received the Royal Society's Royal Medal, and, in 1989, he was honored with the Dirac Medal and Prize of the British Institute of Physics. In 1990, he was awarded the Albert Einstein Medal, and in 1991, the Naylor Prize of the London Mathematical Society. He received the DeMorgan Medal for his wide and original contributions to mathematical physics in 2004.
