Gary Parker, the W. Hilton Johnson Professor of Geology and Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has been elected to the National Academy of Sciences!

Gary has been a key member of the Geology faculty since he moved to Illinois in 2005. He has brought great visibility to the UIUC sediment dynamics program that spans CEE, Geology and GGIS, has helped us build faculty strength in that area, and has provided an excellent interdisciplinary link between Geology and CEE. In his career, Gary has authored or co-authored over 220 journal articles, and his seminal contributions to many areas of sedimentology and geomorphology are widely recognized.

Gary joins three other faculty from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences who were also elected this year.  The LAS news page has more:
