Kellogg faculty members Daniel Diermeier
, the IBM Professor of Regulation and Competitive Practice, and Janice Eberly
, the James R. and Helen D. Russell Professor of Finance, have been elected fellows of the prestigious American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
The Massachusetts-based AAAS has elected “thinkers and doers” — leading scholars, teachers, scientists, artists and other influential figures — to its ranks since its founding in 1780. The 2013 inductees include winners of the Pulitzer and Nobel Prizes, the Guggenheim fellowship, and the Fields medal.
“This is a great honor and a testament to our world-class faculty,” said Dean Sally Blount ’92 in an email to Kellogg faculty and staff this morning. “Please join me in congratulating Jan and Daniel on this outstanding achievement.” Outstanding achievements
Diermeier is the director of Kellogg’s Ford Motor Company Center for Global Citizenship
; a professor of political science at Northwestern’s Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences; and the academic director of Kellogg’s CEO Perspectives Program
. He is also the author of “Reputation Rules: Strategies for Managing Your Company’s Most Valuable Asset.” Published in 2011, the book draws on Diermeier’s expertise in political institutions, reputation management, political and regulatory risk, crisis management, and integrated strategy.
Eberly, who has been the assistant secretary for economic policy for the U.S. Department of the Treasury since October 2011, is the former chair of Kellogg’s finance department. She is also a research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research, and has been a visiting scholar at several Federal Reserve Banks and the Federal Reserve Board of Governors. She has also been an associate editor of the American Economic Review
and other academic journals, and is a senior associate editor of the Journal of Monetary Economics
. Her own research focuses on finance and macroeconomics. The Northwestern connection
Following an induction ceremony this fall, Eberly and Diermeier will join nearly this year’s nearly 200 new AAAS fellows in science and the humanities, including three other Northwestern University faculty members:
- Martin Eichenbaum, Northwestern’s Ethel and John Lindgren Professor of Economics
- Sarah Maza, Northwestern’s Jane Long Professor in Arts and Sciences
- Asher Wolinsky, Northwestern’s Gordon Fulcher Professor of Economics
The ceremony will be held at the AAAS headquarters in Cambridge, Mass., on Oct. 12.
