# Rex Godby

Rex Godby is Professor of Theoretical Physics in the Department of Physics, University of York, where his groupâ€™s research focuses on the quantum dynamics of systems of interacting electrons and other complex systems, including studies of the exact Kohn-Sham potential of time-dependent density-functional theory, together with the development of improved approximate TDDFT functionals for problems such as quantum transport. After completing his Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge in 1984, Godby was a postdoctoral researcher at Bell Labs, Murray Hill, and then returned to Cambridge in 1986 as a research fellow, moving to his present position in York in 1995.
