This month, Prof. Giulia Galli was elected to both the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the National Academy of Sciences, which are considered two of the highest honors that a scientist can receive.

The National Academy of Sciences elects members based on their excellence in original and continuing scientific research. The American Academy elects members who are considered world leaders in their respective fields and who work to respond to global challenges.

“I feel deeply honored,” said Galli, the Liew Family Professor of Molecular Engineering. “I’m grateful to the colleagues who nominated me at the University of Chicago. Without their constant support, none of these recognitions would have ever happened.”

“Giulia’s groundbreaking work in computational modeling of molecular behavior can help us address complex and pressing problems in areas such as renewable energy technology and quantum device engineering,” said Matthew Tirrell, dean of the Pritzker School of Molecular Engineering (PME). “Her election to both of these societies is well-deserved, and we look forward to her continued leadership in her field.”
