Michael S. Turner is the Rauner Distinguished Service Professor at The University of Chicago. From 2003 to 2006 he served at the National Science Foundation as the Assistant Director for the Mathematical and Physical Sciences. His honors include the Lilienfeld Prize of the American Physical Society, the Warner Prize of the American Astronomical Society, an honorary Doctor of Science degree from Michigan State University, and membership in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences. He is one of the pioneers of the interdisciplinary field that has brought together cosmologists and elementary particle physicists to study the earliest moments of creation, and his current research focuses on the mystery of cosmic acceleration, which he believes is the most profound mystery in all of science.
