“Education is the thing I’m most passionate about because it’s the thing in my life that’s given me the most opportunity & the most access. It gives people the power to change their lives. Even if you come from a low-income background like myself, my education & the individuals I've met within the world of academia are what pushed me to believe I can achieve any goal I set for myself.”

UCI UC Irvine social scientists Barbara Dosher and Etel Solingen have been honored by the National Academy of Sciences for major contributions to their fields.

Dosher, UCI Distinguished Professor of cognitive sciences and National Academy of Sciences member, has been named a recipient of the Atkinson Prize in Psychological and Cognitive Sciences for her groundbreaking work on human memory, attention, and learning.

Solingen, UCI Chancellor’s Professor of political science and Thomas T. and Elizabeth C. Tierney Chair in Peace Studies, has been named the William and Katherine Estes Award recipient. The honor recognizes her path breaking work on nuclear proliferation to reduce the risks of nuclear war.

“These awards acknowledge the social and behavioral sciences at UC Irvine as a true center of excellence. That they were given to two outstanding women representing very different fields--cognitive sciences and international relations--speaks to the breadth of our strengths as well as the seriousness of our commitment to expanding the horizons of our sciences,” says Bill Maurer, social sciences dean.
