DDL Director Dr. Angel Hsu has been awarded the Hettleman Prize for Artistic and Scholarly Achievement, one of UNC’s most prestigious acknowledgments of faculty excellence.
The Hettleman Prize was established in 1986 by Ruth and Phillip Hettleman to recognize the scholarly and artistic achievements of junior tenure-track, or recently tenured faculty. Every year, outstanding junior faculty members are awarded to celebrate their career’s promise and groundbreaking, innovative research in their respective fields.
Dr. Hsu was selected for her “theoretical, substantive, and methodological contributions to climate policy.” Her work at DDL and beyond developing methods to better understand progress toward climate goals has been influential in shaping global climate policy.
In recognition of their scholarly achievements, Hettleman Prize Awardees are invited to present at Research Week. This year’s Hettleman Talks are scheduled for October 24th, 3-5 PM ET.
This year’s other four Hettleman Prize awardees are Yaiza Canzani, associate professor in the Department of Mathematics within the College of Arts and Sciences; Brian Conlon, associate professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology within the School of Medicine; Pengda Liu, associate professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics within the School of Medicine; and Alex Worsnip, associate professor in the Department of Philosophy within the College of Arts and Sciences.
