December 18, 2008
Brad Allenby, a professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has been selected as a Fellow of American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), for “distinguished contributions to earth systems engineering and management, design for environment, industrial ecology, and science and technology policy.”
The AAAS is the world’s largest general scientific society, and publisher of the journal Science, the largest paid circulation of any peer-reviewed general science journal in the world, and EurekAlert, the premier science-news Web site.
Election to its fellowship recognizes individuals for “scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications.”
Allenby, considered a pioneer of modern industrial ecology, is also a professor of law and a professor of engineering and ethics with the Joan and David Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics at ASU.
He is co-director of the Center for Sustainable Engineering, and is helping establish a new Center of Earth Systems Engineering and Management.
He recently was named one of the U.S. Professors of the Year for 2008 by The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Higher Education.
