2 NYU faculty elected to National Academy of Sciences
Date:4/29/2008

Two New York University professors, Helmut Hofer of NYUs Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences and Anthony Movshon, director of the universitys Center for Neural Science, have been elected to the National Academy of Sciences, the Washington, D.C.-based organization announced today.

Hofer and Movshon were among the 72 new members and 18 foreign associates from nine countries who were elected in recognition of their distinguished and continuing achievements in original research.

Hofer, who has been a professor of mathematics at the Courant Institute since 1997, focuses on symplectic geometry, dynamical systems, and partial differential equations. He came to NYU from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. Previously, Hofer was on the faculties of the University of Bath, Rutgers University, and Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum.

Movshon, a faculty member in NYUs Department of Psychology and a former Howard Hughes Investigator, is best known for his path-breaking work on how the brain encodes and decodes visual information and in the mechanisms that put that information to use in the control of behavior. Movshon, who is also an adjunct professor at NYU Langone Medical Center, joined the NYU faculty in 1975.

Both Hofer and Movshon are Silver Professors, a designation given to outstanding scholars in NYUs Faculty of Arts and Science. These endowed professorships were made possible by a $175 million gift from the estate of Julius Silver, an NYU alumnus who served as chairman of the executive committee of Polaroid.
