Alan Bishop is an internationally recognized leader in condensed matter theory, statistical physics and nonlinear physics. He has made major contributions in the areas of solitons, quantum complexity, structural and magnetic transitions, collective excitations in low-dimensional organic and inorganic materials and complex electronic materials with strong spin-charge-lattice coupling. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, a recipient of the Department of Energy's E.O. Lawrence Award (citation), a Humboldt Senior Fellow, and a Laboratory Fellow.
