Argonne National Laboratory, USA


Cosmas Zachos was born in 1951, in Athens, Greece. He received his A.B. degree (magna cum laude) from Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA in 1974 and his Ph.D. degree in physics from the California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, Calif, USA in 1979. Zachos is a Physicist at the High Energy Physics Division of the Argonne National Laboratory, since September 1986 (Spokesman for the Theory Group in 1992–1994 and 2000–2002) and was an Assistant Physicist in September 1983–1986. He also worked as a Research Associate in theoretical physics at Fermilab in September 1981–1983, Research Associate in theoretical physics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in September 1979–1981, and Research Associate at Caltech in 1979. Zachos is a Fellow and Life Member of the American Physical Society and Fellow of the Institute of Physics (UK). He was also a Member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Physics A in 1994–1998 and, presently, a Member of the Advisory Panel to the journal. Zachos also serves as an Honorary Member of the Marmaris Institute for Theoretical and Applied Physics (ITAP, Turkey) and a Referee of research proposals for numerous US universities, NSF, DOE, NSERC, PSC-CUNY, and GNSF. Zachos received the Suichi Kusaka Physics Prize in 1973 and had several visiting appointments in IAS (Princeton) in 1983, CINVESTAV (Mexico) in 1985, Durham University (UK) in 1987, University of Miami in 1988, The Ohio State University in 1990, and Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics (Kyoto) in 1994. Zachos's fields of interest are elementary particle physics theory: Nambu dynamics and Brane theory; umbral and holographic interpolation and functional equation structures; anomalies and solitons in deconstruction
