Looks to me like SimSun-ExtB but the numerals look more like Century.

It is entirely plausible he used mixed fonts.

I'm sure nobody cares anymore but IIRC he's said that he wrote his thesis in \LaTeX (like a good physics postgrad should)
which would probably point to Computer Modern serif

and TBH that's what it looks a lot like - at least to me

If it's from Brian Cox, the font is called "smarmy insufferable Euphile"

I'm not a lady and I think he's dishy! He looks good for a 50-something year old.

For many pdf documents, you can often just open them up in Adobe and view their properties to reveal the font details:
View > Security Properties > Fonts

Unfortunately for Brian Cox's thesis, I just get generic fonts. I am not sure what this means, whether they are not recognised, outdated or perhaps something else. I agree with Joinedup however that it looks like Computer Modern.

You can also view a selection of fonts here:
