March 23, 2018

Noelle Selin, Associate Professor of IDSS and EAPS has been awarded a Hans Fischer Senior Fellowship at the Technical University of Munich Institute for Advanced Study (TUM-IAS).

Named after TUM professor Hans Fischer (1881-1945), who was awarded the Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1930, this competitive fellowship brings together TUM researchers and outstanding international scientists to explore innovative, high-risk topics in their scientific research areas, with the goal of making a long-term impact. Over her three years as Fellow, Selin will make frequent visits to Germany to work with TUM faculty and students on research aimed at better understanding science-policy interactions in the field of environment. She will also interact with faculty and students at TUM’s Master’s program in Politics and Technology.

“I’m very much looking forward to using this opportunity to learn more about international perspectives on technology and policy, both from a research and teaching perspective,” says Selin. “I am also looking forward to building further connections between IDSS and our colleagues at TUM.”
