Happy March! And congratulations to faculty and staff who have distinguished themselves and honored the Franklin College with their awards and achievements. Some of these include:
Professor of plant biology and Franklin College associate dean Russell Malmberg has been named University Professor, an honor bestowed on faculty who have had a significant impact on the University of Georgia in addition to fulfilling their normal academic responsibilities.
The honor was first awarded in 1974, and no more than one University Professor can be named in any year.
Big congratulations to assistant professor of marine sciences Brian Hopkinson, who was awarded a 2014 Sloan Foundation grant to support his work on rising carbon dioxide levels in the oceans:
The fellowship is presented by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation each year to early-career scientists and scholars whose achievements and potential identify them as part of the next generation of scientific leaders. This year, 126 fellowships were awarded to promising young scientists like Hopkinson in eight scientific and technical disciplines.
