Richard Lindroth, entomology, is one of ten campus faculty members chosen to be honored with a Kellett Mid-Career Award. The award, supported by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF), recognizes outstanding mid-career faculty members who are five to 20 years past the first promotion to a tenured position. Each winner, chosen by a Graduate School committee, receives a $60,000 flexible research award.
Lindroth is internationally recognized for his research in chemical ecology at numerous levels from genes to ecosystems, particularly in relation to global environmental change. He is a former Fulbright Scholar and a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
The award is named for William R. Kellett, a former president of the WARF board of trustees and retired president of Kimberly-Clark Corp.
