Paul M. Goldbart is Dean of the College of Natural Sciences and Robert E. Boyer Chair at The University of Texas at Austin. He earned a B.A. in Physics and Theoretical Physics from Cambridge University (1981), an M.S. in Physics from UCLA (1982), and a Diploma in Mathematical Physics and a Ph.D. in Physics from Imperial College London (1985). Goldbart came to Texas in August 2018 from the Georgia Institute of Technology, where he served first as Chair of the School of Physics and then as Dean of the College of Sciences and was the inaugural holder of the Betsy Middleton and John Clark Sutherland Chair.

At Georgia Tech, Goldbart focused on advancing the Institute’s research and teaching in mathematics and the sciences and elevating their national and international visibility. His efforts included growing, enhancing, and diversifying undergraduate programs; investing in research infrastructure and core facilities; appointing and developing early career faculty and ensuring excellence in instruction; promoting research and education in numerous areas including neuroscience, microbial ecology, applied mathematics, astrophysics and astrobiology, and soft materials; encouraging high-risk/high-reward explorations; undertaking extensive development and alumni relations activities; communicating the college’s discoveries; engaging the public; and advocating for science and mathematics. As dean, he also oversaw the launching of doctoral programs in quantitative biosciences and in ocean science and engineering and a bachelor’s degree in neuroscience, as well as the growth of living-learning communities devoted to science and mathematics. He is committed to inclusive excellence in its most wide-reaching forms, and created a Diversity Council to advise the college and foster progress, including the promotion of family-friendly practices in the workplace. He was also committed to recognizing the importance of the contributions made by the college’s staff. 

Goldbart’s research – done jointly with graduate-student, postdoctoral and faculty collaborators – is primarily on the physics of condensed matter. This field explores how the large-scale features of matter (e.g., rigidity, liquid crystallinity, magnetism, and superfluidity) emerge as consequences of the nature of the constituents and the interactions between them. Goldbart has also contributed to the fields of mesoscopic physics, quantum entanglement and chaos, atom-light crystallization in ultracold gases, nano-superconductivity, and a little law and economics. He interacts widely, with both experimentalists and theorists, and has co-authored approximately 150 journal articles and a textbook: Mathematics for Physics – A Guided Tour for Graduate Students. Goldbart has been elected to fellowships in the American Physical Society, the U.K.’s Institute of Physics, and the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and he was named a National Science Foundation Presidential Young Investigator. At the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he spent 25 years before moving to Georgia Tech, Goldbart led a large-scale, multi-investigator Department of Energy program on Quantum Materials at the Nanoscale, and he was the founding director of the university’s Institute for Condensed Matter Theory.

An award-winning instructor, Goldbart has taught at all collegiate levels and guided numerous doctoral and postdoctoral researchers, many of whom have gone on to university faculty positions. He is an advocate for public engagement in science and mathematics and for science as a model for addressing complex challenges, including having launched a lecture series that exposes the public to exciting topics in contemporary science. He delivered a lecture for this series on the 2016 Nobel Prize in Physics and on Einstein’s contributions to the quantum revolution, and he served in leadership roles at the Aspen Center for Physics and as honorary chair of the Atlanta Science Festival, for which he also served on the Board of Directors.
