Professor Price: It is my pleasure tonight to present you with the 1999 Schlumberger Medal for scientific excellence in mineralogy and its applications. You have made distinguished contributions to many aspects of computational mineral physics, most notably to minerals under mantle and core temperatures and pressures where experimentation is so difficult. These studies indicate which phases are stable and unstable inside the Earth.

Even before your entry to Cambridge as an undergraduate you had started research work at the National Physical Laboratory on dispersive Fourier transform spectroscopy (hardly a popular schoolboy’s hobby!) which resulted in three publications before you graduated...
