Levin wins National Medal of Science for unraveling ecological complexity

Simon Levin, Princeton University's George M. Moffett Professor of Biology and professor of ecology and evolutionary biology, will receive a National Medal of Science, the nation's highest scientific honor. Levin will be honored at a White House ceremony early this year along with eight fellow Medal of Science recipients and eight recipients of the National Medal of Technology and Innovation.  "One never expects such things, which makes them all the more gratifying when they do come," Levin said. "For me, this recognition is the epitome. What could be better than recognition in one's own country and from one's own country? Princeton has been a wonderful environment that has given me unlimited opportunity to pursue the research that the medal rewards."
