Congratulations to Andrew Marshall, who was selected as a 2013 Chancellor's Fellow

Andrew Marshall, Department of Anthropology — “He pursues questions of deep theoretical significance, and of vital applied importance, such as the conservation of great apes,” Dean George Mangun wrote in his nomination letter. “His approach is to apply the modern tools of theoretical ecology. This allows him to address issues of public importance while remaining engaged with basic research in population biology.” In his teaching, Marshall is “industrious and admired,” and in his service to the campus and the international community of science, he goes beyond what is normally expected of someone of his rank, Mangun wrote. In recommending him for a chancellor’s fellowship, the dean cited Marshall’s research productivity, ability to maintain an overseas field site (in Asia), and active service and participation in the intellectual life of UC Davis. He holds a Ph.D. from Harvard (2004) and joined the UC Davis faculty in 2007.

The Title of Chancellor's Fellow is held for 5 years and comes with a $25,000 prize.

He joins previous Anthropology Chancellor's Fellows: Richard McElreath (2007) and Li Zhang (2004)
