- Author BiographyDr. Oded Regev received his B.Sc. in Physics and Mathematics from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel and went on to receive his Physics PhD, in 1981, from the Tel Aviv University, Israel. He conducted his post-doctoral research at the University of Florida after which he held a lecturer position at the Physics Faculty of the Technion in Haifa, Israel. He advanced to Full Professor in 1996 and retired in 2006 and received the status of Professor Emeritus. He spent his sabbaticals in England (Leicester University), France (Grenoble University and later in the Paris Institute d'Astrophysique). His two year (1987-1989) leave of absence was devoted to research and teaching at Columbia University. He lives now in New York, doing some collaborative research but focusing mainly on writing physics text books and recently fiction in the form of short stories. email@example.com www.regevale.com Dr. Orkan M. Umurhan received his B.Sc. from UCLA and his PhD from Columbia University. He has taught astronomy, physics and applied mathematics at City College of San Francisco, San Jose State University and University of California Merced. He went on to postdoctoral and research scientist positions at Technion, Tel Aviv University, Queen Mary University of London and the SETI Institute. His research areas include astrophysical and geophysical fluid flows, planet formation, geomorphology and landform evolution. He currently works in the Space Sciences and Astrobiology Division of NASA Ames Research Center, where he is a member of the New Horizons science team. firstname.lastname@example.org Dr. Philip A. Yecko received his S.B. in Physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and PhD in Astronomy from Columbia University, followed by post-doctoral research at University of Florida and Paris VI. After a lectureship in Computational Physics at Trinity College Dublin, he joined the faculty of Columbia University, Astronomy Department, followed by Montclair State University, Mathematical Sciences, spending sabbaticals at M.I.T. Mathematics and the Applied Math Lab, N.Y.U. Courant Institute. Currently he is Associate Professor of Physics at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art in New York City, where he directs the Complex Fluids lab. His current research is in biological, geophysical and multi-phase fluid dynamics. email@example.com
