Marius Crainic is one of the world’s leading experts on Poisson geometry. Working with Professor Rui Loja Fernandes, he solved a long-standing problem of generalising Sophus Lie’s third theorem from the setting of Lie groups (every Lie algebra is associated with a Lie group) to that of Lie groupoids.

His work has made an important contribution to the new field of Poisson topology.
