Professors Santanu Bose, Amanda Boyd, Nairanjana Dasgupta, Mary Paine, Tahira Probst, and Mechthild Tegeder have been elected new members to the Washington State Academy of Sciences (WSAS).
They are part of the 29-member class of 2023 inductees who join the nonprofit organization with a mission to bring the best available science to bear on issues within the state of Washington.
“WSAS is proud to elevate these exceptional individuals for the many ways in which they have advanced scientific and engineering excellence,” said John Roll, WSAS president and WSU professor and vice dean of research at the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine. “We look forward to engaging them in addressing complex societal challenges not only for the benefit of the citizens of Washington state but for all citizens of the world.”
Three WSU faculty were also recently named to leadership positions with the Academy.
The new members will be inducted at the annual members meeting in Spokane on Sept. 13.
