Olander Among Five Duke Faculty Named AAAS Fellows for 2021
Five members of the Duke faculty have been named Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. They are among 564 new members elected for their efforts on behalf of the advancement of science or its applications in service to society.
“Becoming a AAAS Fellow is among the most distinct honors within the scientific community, and the AAAS Council elects its Fellows deliberately and carefully to preserve the honor attached to this recognition,” the AAAS said in a statement.
Duke's new fellows include Lydia Olander, Ph.D., who was recognized in the Biological Sciences section. An adjunct professor in environmental sciences and policy in the Nicholas School of the Environment, Olander directs the Ecosystem Services Program in the Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions. She is being cited for “Distinguished contributions of the field of ecosystem services, particularly for developing and promulgating methods to enhance environmental sustainability.”
