Abstract:
The University of Michigan's Sharon Glotzer and Scott Page have been named to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a prestigious society that recognizes individuals who have made significant contributions in scholarly and professional fields.

Two U-M faculty named to American Academy of Arts and Sciences

Ann Arbor, MI | Posted on April 21st, 2011

They are among 212 new fellows and 16 foreign honorary members, including scholars, scientists, writers, artists and civic, corporate and philanthropic leaders.

• Glotzer, the Stuart W. Churchill Collegiate Professor of Chemical Engineering at U-M, conducts research in the areas of computational nanoscience and simulation of soft matter, self-assembly and materials design. She has published more than 130 articles and presented nearly 200 invited talks and keynote lectures. She is active in science and technology policy and serves on many national advisory and study committees, including the National Academies' Solid State Sciences Committee.

• Page, the Leonid Hurwicz Collegiate Professor of Complex Systems, Political Science, and Economics, is the principal investigator of the IDEAS IGERT grant, funded by the National Science Foundation. He studies the importance of diversity and complexity in social systems and is the author of more than 60 articles and four books including the recently released Diversity and Complexity. He regularly consults with government, business, and educational institutions on the pragmatic benefits of diversity.

The new class of fellows will be inducted at a ceremony Oct. 1 at the academy's headquarters in Cambridge, Mass.

Since its founding in 1780 by John Adams, James Bowdoin, John Hancock and other scholar-patriots, the academy has elected leading "thinkers and doers" from each generation, including George Washington and Benjamin Franklin in the 18th century, Daniel Webster and Ralph Waldo Emerson in the 19th century, and Albert Einstein and Winston Churchill in the 20th century. The current membership includes more than 250 Nobel laureates and more than 60 Pulitzer Prize winners.
