Short citation at year of election

Professor Dracoulis has made important contributions to the spectroscopy of very neutron-deficient nuclei and to the understanding of unusual Nuclear states, particularly through the elucidation of the interplay between single-particle and collective degrees of freedom. These contributions have come through a commitment to both theoretical interpretation and to comprehensive and definitive time-correlated γ-ray and electron nuclear spectroscopy, for which he has an international reputation. This has placed Dracoulis's group amongst the recognised leaders in the field.
