Landau, Terns named Regents’ Professors

Alan Flurry

Three University of Georgia faculty members have been named Regents’ Professors in recognition of the national and international reach of their innovative and pace-setting scholarship. Regents’ professorships are bestowed by the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia and are the highest professorial recognition in the state’s system of public colleges and universities.

The university’s 2022–2023 Regents’ Professors are Jenna Jambeck, Georgia Athletic Association Distinguished Professor in Environmental Engineering in the College of Engineering; David P. Landau, Distinguished Research Professor in the department of physics and astronomy and director of the Center for Simulational Physics in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences; and Michael Terns, Distinguished Research Professor in the department of biochemistry and molecular biology and the department of genetics, also in the Franklin College. Each of their Regents’ professorship appointments will take effect on July 1.

“The high caliber of research and scholarship produced by professors Jambeck, Landau and Terns has brought them well-earned national and international acclaim,” said S. Jack Hu, the university’s senior vice president for academic affairs and provost. “I am grateful for their commitment to mentoring students and their world-renowned research and scholarship that address the challenges we face as a society.”
