Stanley wins Kellett Mid-Career Award
March 10, 2015
Emily Stanley, a professor of zoology and faculty affiliate of the Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies, is one of nine members of the University of Wisconsin-Madison faculty who have won Kellett Mid-Career Awards.
The Kellett awards recognize outstanding faculty seven to 20 years past their first promotion to a tenured position. The Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education chooses winners from professors nominated by departments, Ph.D. major programs and interdepartmental groups. A faculty member can win only one Kellett award.
Supported by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, the Kellett award provides $60,000 in research funding to faculty members at a critical stage of their careers. It is named for William R. Kellett, a former president of the WARF board of trustees and retired president of Kimberly-Clark Corp.
Stanley is an aquatic ecologist whose research bridges biological and earth sciences. She is interested in human influences on nutrient cycling, carbon cycling and long-term change in streams and lakes. She also shares her knowledge of inland waters through her involvement in teaching the world’s largest class in limnology.
