Writer(s): Logan Judy
The Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences has honored three of its alumni for their outstanding achievements.
The Outstanding Alumni Award is given annually to alumni who have been successful in their career paths and made impactful contributions in their chosen fields. This year’s recipients were Drs. Martin Doyle, Jiin-Shuh Jean, and John McGinnis.
The breadth of experiences between the three awardees demonstrates the diversity of an EAPS education. Dr. Jean is a distinguished professor at the National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan, and focuses on medical geology in order to solve epidemic problems. Dr. Doyle, a professor at Duke University, has been serving as the Senior Conservation Finance Fellow at the Department of the Interior’s newly created Natural Resources Investment Center. Dr. McGinnis is the President of Seneca Corporation, and has 30+ years of experience in exploration geology, and has conducted research on every continent, including Antarctica. All three of these recipients have received numerous awards throughout their careers.
The awards were formally presented at a ceremony today.
