Congratulations to Kim Prather on the Election to the American Philosophical Society

Please join us in congratulating Professor Kim Prather<https://kprather.scrippsprofiles.ucsd.edu> on her election to the American Philosophical Society, a rarefied field of scholars and a high honor. She is among the 37 new members, a first from UC San Diego since 2010. Prather, a distinguished professor of SIO and Chemistry/Biochemistry, is also a fellow of both NAE and NAS. Her work on aerosols and atmospheric chemistry has had a significant impact both on the scientific community as well as on public awareness as the airborne spread of Covid-19 continues to affect our daily lives.

Professor Prather has been a key advisor to HDSI through its formative years and currently serves on the joint faculty recruiting committee with HDSI and SIO.

Congratulations Kim! We are all very proud of your work and achievements!
