Francine Berman of the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Berman in 2009 was the inaugural recipient of the ACM/IEEE-CS Ken Kennedy Award for "influential leadership in design, development, and deployment of national-scale cyberinfrastructure."

She also is former director of the San Diego Supercomputer Center, and a fellow of ACM, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences (AAAS).

In 2015, Berman was appointed a member of the U.S. National Council on the Humanities.

Said RPI School of Science dean Curt M. Breneman, "We are all enormously proud of Dr. Berman's election to the AAAS, because it represents a peak of well-deserved recognition for her leadership of the Research Data Alliance, and for her dedication to sustainable digital preservation and public access to critical data."
