External Professor Melanie Moses has been named a new council member of the Computing Community Consortium. Comprised of 20 members, the council is selected by the Computing Research Association in consultation with the National Science Foundation to “help catalyze and enable ideas for future computing research.” 

The “Future of the human climate niche” paper, which was conceived during an SFI working group and co-authored by External Professors Marten Scheffer and Tim Kohler, is one of “The 5 most popular scientific papers of May 2020,” according to Nature Index News. Its online attention score of 3082 ranks it amongst the top research outputs for the journal PNAS (#22 out of 84,837). 

For "lifetime contributions to the field of complex systems science," SFI's Melanie Mitchell will receive the Herbert A. Simon Award from the New England Complex Systems Institute.
