A.S. Fokas has a BSc in Aeronautics from Imperial College (1975), a PhD in Applied Mathematics from the California Institute of Technology (1979) and an MD from the University of Miami, School of Medicine (1986).
In 1986, at the age of 33, he was appointed Professor and Chairman of the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science of Clarkson University, USA. In 1996 he was appointed to a Chair in Applied Mathematics at Imperial College, UK. In 2002 he was appointed to the newly inaugurated Chair in Nonlinear Mathematical Science at the University of Cambridge, UK.
In 2000 he was awarded the Naylor Prize (the most prestigious Prize in Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics in UK; the last five earlier recipients were Sir Roger Penrose, Sir Michael Berry, Sir John Ball, F.P. Kelly and S.W. Hawking). In 2004 he was awarded the Aristeion Prize in Sciences of the Academy of Athens (the most prestigious Prize of the Academy given every four years to a single scholar of Greek origin chosen from science, engineering, or medicine). In 2005 he was elected a Professorial Fellow at Clare Hall and was also decorated as the Commander of the Order of Phoenix by the President of the Hellenic Republic. In 2006 he was awarded the Excellence Prize of the Bodossaki Foundation (this premier scientific Prize is awarded every two years to scientists of Greek origin, as chosen by an international committee chaired by a Nobel Laureate). In the period 2004-2008,he received honourary degrees from five Universities. In 2009 he was selected as a Guggenheim Fellow on the basis “of stellar achievement and exceptional promise for continued accomplishment”. In 2010, he was appointed “Ambassador of Hellenism” by the Prefecture of Athens and was also elected a Fellow of the European Academy of Science. He is the youngest member of the Academy of Athens and the first ever Applied Mathematician to be elected a full member to the Academy.
