Prof. John Webb is an astrophysicist. His cutting edge research on varying constants has led him to the front pages of Scientific American, New Scientist and the Economist. If his tentative discovery that constants of nature are changing is validated, it will profoundly impact our view of the universe.

John was named as one of Sydney’s most influential people in 2012 by the Sydney Morning Herald, received the 2012 Eureka Prize for Scientific Research, and the 2013 NSW Science and Engineering Award for Excellence in mathematics, earth sciences, chemistry and physics.
