Congratulations to Virginia Tech professor Patricia M. Dove on being elected a member of the National Academy of Sciences. Dove, the C.P. Miles Professor of Science in the Department of Geosciences in the College of Science, was selected for membership in recognition of her sustained excellence in original scientific research.
Membership in the NAS is one of the highest honors given to a scientist in the United States. Dove will be inducted into the Academy next April during its 150th annual meeting in Washington, D.C.
Dove was appointed the C.P. “Sally” Miles Professor of Science in September 2010. The professorship was established in 1986 through a gift from Melvin “Cy” Young and honors the Virginia Tech graduate who spent 59 years at the university teaching chemistry and coaching athletic teams. The professorship supports an outstanding faculty member in the College of Science.
