Space Physics professor receives trio of honors
Margaret Kivelson – distinguished professor emerita of Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences – recently earned three prestigious honors: election to the Royal Society, Harvard’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Centennial Medal, and an honorary doctor of science degree from the University of Leicester.
Kivelson joined UCLA in 1967 as an assistance research geophysicist, and continued on as a professor and later department chair for EPSS. These honors recognize Kivelson’s work in shaping our understanding of Earth and other planets.
