Nobel Prize 2016 — Seminar & Dinner with Michael Kosterlitz

Yesterday, APCTP organized a special lecture and dinner with professor Michael Kosterlitz and his wife Berit Kosterlitz.

Michael’s shown the contributions that led him to the Nobel prize in 2016. He also told us how good he was in climbing, and that he chose some of his first postdoc positions based on the mountains surrounding the cities.

His wife, Berit Kosterlitz, is very entertaining, she told us all sort of funny stories, some details on the Nobel prize backstage, and how in the 1960s she was invited by her friends to go to a concert of a new band in Cambridge, but Berit decided not to go because she thought that a band with a name of insects shouldn’t be good enough.

Anyway, it was a memorable dinner!
