Peter Szekeres received his PhD from King's College London in 1964, in the area of general relativity. He subsequently held research and teaching positions at Cornell University, King's College and the University of Adelaide, where he stayed from 1971 till his recent retirement. Currently he is a Visiting Research Fellow at that institution. He is well known internationally for his research in general relativity and cosmology, and has a good reputation for his teaching and lecturing.
