Professor Cin-Ty Lee is among 13 scientists that are the 2019 Geochemistry Fellows of the Geochemical Society and the European Association of Geochemistry.

Established in 1996, the honorary title of Geochemistry Fellow is bestowed upon outstanding scientists who have made a major contribution to the field of geochemistry.

Contributions may include a broad range of scientific achievements that advance geochemistry, but may also recognize a diversity of contributions that create environments essential for scientific progress.

From the Geochemistry Fellows page: Examples of  contributions include: improvements to infrastructure and techniques; capacity building-especially in developing countries or emerging disciplines; curation of sample collections and databases; exceptional editorial contributions; communication of the intrinsic excitement of our field to the general public; work with policy makers to ensure that their decisions are grounded in rigorous science; training the next generation of geochemists; and advancing ethics, inclusiveness, and social justice in science.

Cin-Ty was selected for: “His diverse, creative and prolific work, his provocative ideas that have inspired debate and action, and his fundamental contributions to the understanding of our planet’s continents.”
