So Smug

OK, now we’re getting a little tired of this. First we got nine Berkeley professors in the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, then we got five Guggenheim fellows, and now we’ve got three professors named to the National Academy of Sciences. Yawn. Any more accolades to hand out?

Still, this is badass.  The three profs are as follows:

-Alexis Bell, a chemistry professor who studies catalysts “and how their molecular structure affects the efficiency of chemical reactions”

-Michael Jordan (!), an EECS and stats professor who “does research at the intersection of computer science and biology, including machine learning,” and

-stats prof David Aldous who works with mathematical probability.

We’ve now got 136 members of the NAS on our campus. As if that weren’t enough, one professor who is GOING to teach hereand another scientist who works at the Lawrence Berkeley Lab also just received their memberships.

But hey, who’s counting? We just sit back and let the awards roll themselves on in. And yes, if there was an award for biggest egos on a campus per unit area, we’d probably win that too. We’re very important.
