Epstein named Massachusetts Academy of Sciences Fellow

Professor of Chemistry Irving Epstein has been named a Fellow of the Massachusetts Academy of Sciences. Epstein joins Brandeis Professors Emeritus Carolyn Cohen and Jeff Hall, as well as Professor of Biology Eve Marder, as fellows of this academy.

The Massachusetts Academy works to promote public understanding and appreciation of the sciences, to support scientific research and education in areas relevant to the needs of the state, and to provide consultative or advisory services on matters of science to the Governor, and to local, state, and federal agencies. Epstein is an expert on dynamical systems, with a current focus on theory and experiment in oscillatory and pattern-forming chemical reactions. Epstein has also been enormously influential in the development of science education and research since coming to Brandeis. Epstein has served Brandeis among other roles as Provost, and recently has been the driving force behind the Brandeis Science Posse.
