University of Pittsburgh Professor Emily Elliott was elected to the Ecological Society of America Class of 2024 Fellows. The Society’s fellowship program recognizes the many ways in which its members contribute to ecological research, communication, education, management and policy. This year, the ESA Governing Board has confirmed nine new Fellows and ten new Early Career Fellows.

Elliott is a Professor in the Department of Geology & Environmental Science, with a secondary appointment in the Swanson School of Engineering’s Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. She studies human impacts on nutrient cycling with a particular focus on feedback mechanisms and her research has advanced the use of stable isotopes to unravel nutrient dynamics in ecosystems. Elliot co-founded the Pittsburgh Water Collaboratory which builds academic-community partnerships, and she directs the Pitt Isotope Tracers Lab at the University of Pittsburgh. Both her leadership and achievements in mentoring have been recognized with national awards. She earned her M.S. and Ph.D. in the Department of Geography and Environmental Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.
