Margaret Kivelson, most recently a UCLA distinguished professor of Space Physics as well as a frequent visitor to AOSS as a scientist and a mentor, will be joing AOSS as a Research Professor. She is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society. In 2005, she received the Fleming Award of the American Geophysical Union, which recognizes outstanding contribution to the description and understanding of electricity and magnetism of the earth and its atmosphere and of the Alfvén Medal of the European Geophysical Union for her pioneering work on Jupiter and its moons, including the discovery of the intrinsic magnetic field of Ganymede and study of the coupling of its magnetosphere with that of Jupiter. She has published more than 300 research papers, and is the co-editor of a widely used textbook in space physics.
