The Emerging Leaders initiative across the Journal of Physics series brings together exceptional early-career researchers across all of core physics, and is a showcase of the outstanding original research being undertaken by the next generation of top scientists. This inaugural edition is part of the series' 50th anniversary celebrations.
An emerging leader is a top researcher in their field who completed their PhD in 2007 or later (nine years excluding career breaks). They are identified by the Editorial Board as the most exciting researchers in their generation.One of the figures completed by Matthew during his M.Phys project will even appear on the cover of this special volume!
