Professor Sara Pryor is recipient of the 2018 CALS Research and Extension Award for Outstanding Accomplishments in Research
Earth and Atmospheric Sciences professor Sara C. Pryor has been selected to receive the 2018 CALS Research and Extension Award for Outstanding Accomplishments in Research. Professor Pryor is being recognized this year for her work in monitoring wind turbines using seismometers as revolutionary, innovative, and potentially transformative. Her research shows the potential to have far-reaching influence not only in New York, but nationally and globally as well. The value and relevance of Pryor's research is also reflected in her contributions to international debates on renewable energy and climate change.
The research and extension awards are given for outstanding accomplishments in research and meant to recognize outstanding contributions to research, including everything from solving critical problems facing New York State and beyond to contributions to knowledge, understanding, and theory at the disciplinary level. Dean Kathryn Boor will host a ceremony to recognize 2018 CALS awards recipients and their accomplishments on November 5, 2018.
