Prof. Kim Prather has been inaugurated as a Muir Environmental Fellow by UC San Diego's John Muir College, citing her innovative work on aerosols and their climate impacts, along with her significant efforts in science education in both K-12 environments and here at UC San Diego.
"Each year, the college names as Muir Environmental Fellows a selected group of individuals affiliated with UC San Diego (faculty, staff, or alumni) whose work has contributed significantly to the cause of sustainability and environmental preservation."
Honored alongside Prof. Prather were Prof. Charles F. Kennel (emeritus) [Scripps Inst. of Oceanography], the founding director of UCSD's Environment and Sustainability Initiative, and Prof. Naomi Oreskes [History and Science Studies], a noted and highly accomplished communicator of environmental science, especially with respect to climate change.
