Patrick Reed, Joseph C. Ford Professor of Engineering, was elected as an American Geophysical Union’s (AGU) Fellow. He joined 53 other individuals in the 2022 Class of Fellows. Since 1962, the AGU Union Fellows Committee has selected less than 0.1% of members as new Fellows.
AGU notes that Fellows are selected because they have made outstanding achievements and contributions by pushing forward the frontiers of our science. Fellows embody AGU’s vision of a thriving, sustainable, and equitable future powered by discovery, innovation, and action.
“I am very humbled to join the 2022 class of AGU fellows and to be part of the amazing legacy of fellows that have been honored since 1962,” said Reed. “I very much appreciate the care and support that my nominators, the Hydrology Section, and AGU overall invested to make this honor possible.”
Reed is being inducted into the class of 2022 AGU Fellows for his groundbreaking contributions addressing how deep uncertainties and multi-objective demands impact hydrologic systems confronting change.
“We are so proud of Pat Reed's research contributions that are being recognized with induction as an AGU fellow,” said Linda Nozick, Professor and Director of the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University. “His research is an inspiration and serves as a wonderful model for our students.”
Reed's primary research interests relate to sustainable water management given conflicting demands from renewable energy systems, ecosystem services, expanding populations, and climate change.
AGU will formally recognize this year’s recipients during #AGU22 Fall Meeting, 12-16 December 2022 in Chicago, IL and online everywhere. This celebration is a chance for AGU’s community to recognize the outstanding work of our colleagues and be inspired by their accomplishments and stories.
