Michael Eastwood FAA is a mathematician at the University of Adelaide[1], known for his work in twistor theory, conformal differential geometry and invariant differential operators. In 1976[2] he received a PhD at Princeton University in several complex variables under Robert C. Gunning. He was a member of the twistor research group of Roger Penrose at the University of Oxford and he coauthored the monograph The Penrose Transform: Its Interaction with Representation Theory with Robert Baston. After moving to South Australia in 1985 he was the 1992 recipient of the Australian Mathematical Society Medal [3]and made a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science in 2005. [4]
