Biography

James Gregory and Bishop Wardlaw Professor of Theoretical Solar Physics at the University of St. Andrews. He is an elected member of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, the Norwegian Academy of Sciences and Letters, and the Royal Society. Priest has served as vice president of the United Kingdom’s Royal Astronomical Society and president of the International Astronomical Union’s Commission on Solar Activity. He was awarded the James Arthur Prize (Harvard), the Hale Prize (American Astronomical Society), the Rosseland Lectureship (Oslo University), the Gold medal of the Royal Astronomical Society, and the Payne-Gaposchkin medal and prize of the United Kingdom’s Institute of Physics. He has served on numerous national and international committees in astronomy, solar physics, and applied mathematics, and currently serves on the Scottish Episcopal Church’s Doctrine Committee and the Scottish Presbyterian Church’s Society, Religion, and Technology Committee. Priest studied mathematics at Nottingham University and received his doctorate from Leeds University. His research includes constructing mathematical models for the subtle and complex ways in which magnetic fields interact with plasmas in the atmosphere of the sun and in more exotic cosmic objects. He occasionally speaks on science and creativity, examining the relationships, tensions, and interactions between science and religion. Priest is the author of over 450 peer-reviewed research publications and has written or edited 18 books, including Solar Magnetohydrodynamics (1982) and Magnetic Reconnection: MHD Theory and Applications (with T.G. Forbes, 2000).
