"These three professors exemplify the qualities of teaching, research and scholarship that this honor requires,” said University President Eric Kaler. "Pioneers in their respective disciplines, each have made field-shaping discoveries that benefit Minnesotans, the nation and the world.”

He has played a pioneering role in bringing Big Data and earth science together to address one of the grand challenges of our times —understanding the impact of human induced changes on the earth system and its environment.
