Faculty Named Ivy Plus Provost Leadership Fellows

Penn Arts & Sciences

David L. Goldsby, Professor and Chair of Earth and Environmental Science; Junhyong Kim, Patricia M. Williams Term Professor and Chair of Biology; and Marisa C. Kozlowski, Professor of Chemistry, are all members of Penn’s inaugural cohort of Ivy Plus Provost Leadership Fellows. The fellows were announced by Interim Provost Beth A. Winkelstein and Vice Provost for Faculty Laura Perna, and also include two faculty from the School of Engineering and Applied Science.

The Ivy Plus Provost Leadership Fellows will participate in the 2022-2023 Institute on Inquiry, Equity, and Leadership of the Faculty Advancement Network, a consortium of 12 research universities collaborating to advance diversity and inclusion. The goal of the institute is to prepare faculty leaders with the tools and skills of inquiry needed to lead their respective departments and/or disciplines toward increased diversity, equity, inclusion, and inclusive excellence. Joann Mitchell, Senior Vice President for Institutional Affairs and Chief Diversity Officer, and Perna serve as Penn’s Steering Committee members for the Faculty Advancement Network.

David L. Goldsby researches the flow and fracture of rocks, ice and other planetary materials at the laboratory scale, and how these influence large-scale geodynamic processes, such as the nucleation of earthquakes and the response of ice sheets to a warming climate.

Junhyong Kim focuses his study at the interface of genomics, computational biology, and evolution. His currently research involves developing new single cell technologies and applying single cell assays to understanding the cellular diversity of the female reproductive system, kidney diseases, and cell differentiation processes.

Marisa C. Kozlowski researches the rational design of new methods and catalysts for use in organic synthesis, the use of high throughput screening and employment of novel computational tools for the discovery and optimization of new reagents and catalysts, and the mechanisms to improve reaction processes and increase understanding of fundamental reaction steps.
