From Thermodynamics of Computation

Biography: Gavin E. Crooks is an English chemist currently researching in America. He is known for his work on non-equilibrium thermodynamics and statistical mechanics. He discovered the Crooks fluctuation theorem, a general statement about the free energy difference between the initial and final states of a non-equilibrium transformation. Crooks is now a senior research scientist at Rigetti Computing.

Field(s) of Research: General Non-equilibrium Statistical Physics, Stochastic Thermodynamics
