AUSTRALIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCE
MEDIA RELEASE

5 April 2011
Science Academy elects new Corresponding Member

Professor John Dewey of the University of Oxford joins a distinguished group of international scientists elected as Corresponding Members of the Australian Academy of Science.
Corresponding Members are eminent scientists residing overseas who have developed links with scientific institutes in Australia and maintain strong ties with Australian scientists.
Professor Dewey is a geologist who has been at the forefront of the development of new concepts in Earth movements (tectonics) during the last 50 years. He has been a leader in transforming tectonic geology to its modern form.
His work on mountain belts shows how their evolution is related to collisions between tectonic plates at the Earth's surface.
As a frequent visitor to Australia during the last 20 years, Professor Dewey has made significant contributions to the understanding of Australian geology.
'The Academy is delighted to welcome this internationally renowned scholar to its ranks,' said Professor Suzanne Cory, President of the Australian Academy of Science.
'We look forward to even closer bonds between Professor Dewey and the Australian geoscience community.'
Professor Dewey has received numerous previous honours including the highest awards of the geological societies of London and America, the Wollaston and Penrose Medals. He is also a Fellow of the Royal Society in the United Kingdom and member of the National Academy of Sciences in the United States.
To arrange an interview with Professor Dewey, please contact Mona Akbari.
