“Eli definitely has the qualifications and broad research interests that the PRE editorship requires,” said Gene Sprouse, APS Editor in Chief. “His prior involvement with PRE and his strong editorial experience with other journals were also very compelling.”
Physical Review E is the APS journal covering statistical, nonlinear, and soft matter physics. Ben-Naim is a theoretical physicist whose own research has focused on the nonequilibrium statistical mechanics of interacting particle systems and its application to soft matter and complex systems.
