Nancy Grimm, a professor in Arizona State University’s School of Life Sciences, has been named a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union. The AGU Fellows program recognizes members who have made exceptional contributions to earth and space sciences.

“It is an honor to join such a great group,” Grimm said. “I am thrilled to be recognized for my contributions and am grateful to all the terrific students, postdocs and colleagues I’ve worked with over the years for helping shape those contributions.”

Grimm studies the intersection of climate variation and change, human activities and ecosystems. Her research has focused on disturbance, resilience and biogeochemical processes. Her lab studies how disturbances, such as flooding or drying, affect the structure and processes of desert streams and cities, the effects of storm water infrastructure on water and material movement across an urban landscape, and impacts of extreme events on urban social-ecological-technological systems and their infrastructure.

Grimm has authored or co-authored more than 190 publications, including journal articles, book chapters and commentaries, editorials and reports. She is a senior sustainability scientist at ASU and also is a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and of the Ecological Society of America. She is a past program director for the U.S. National Science Foundation and senior scientist for the U.S. Global Research Program. Grimm also was a lead author for two chapters of the U.S. National Climate Assessment released in 2014.
