Professor Daniel G. Nocera, Patterson Rockwood Professor of Energy, has been elected into the American Philosophical Society under the Mathematical and Physical Sciences class.
The American Philosophical Society (APS), the oldest learned society in the United States, was founded in 1743 by Benjamin Franklin for the purpose of “promoting useful knowledge.” The Society "honors and engages leading scholars, scientists, and professionals through elected membership and opportunities for interdisciplinary, intellectual fellowship." The APS has approximately 1,000 elected Members. Election to the APS honors extraordinary accomplishments in all fields. The APS is unusual among learned societies because its membership is comprised of top scholars from a wide variety of academic disciplines.
Congratulations, Professor Nocera, on this well-deserved recognition!
