Stokes SFI Lecturer

The Science Foundation Ireland Stokes Professorship and Lectureship Programme (briefly "The Stokes") is designed to support the strategic planning for increasing the number of research active faculty members in the short term. The Programme is named after Sir George Gabriel Stokes (1819-1903) the Irish mathematician and physicist who was born in Skreen, Co. Sligo. Stokes made several important contributions to fluid dynamics (c.f., Navier-Stokes equations), optics and maths physics (c.f., Stokes Theorem). Like Newton, Stokes was the Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at Cambridge University, a parliamentary representative for Cambridge University and a President of the Royal Society. Stokes made key contributions to the foundations of what we now call ICT and BIO.
