Jennifer Pan, assistant professor of communications, is among five Stanford scholars chosen to be fellows in residence at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences.

The five Stanford scholars are DONALD BARR, professor (teaching) of pediatrics; ROB JACKSON, the Michelle and Kevin Douglas Provostial Professor of Earth system science; PAULA MOYA, professor of English and the Danily C. and Laura Louise Bell Professor of the Humanities; JENNIFER PAN, assistant professor of communication; and RAMÓN SALDÍVAR, professor of English and comparative literature and the Hoagland Family Professor of Humanities and Sciences.

“Each year, CASBS becomes a vibrant community thanks to its fellows,” said SALLY SCHROEDER, the center’s associate director, in an announcement on the center’s website. “The success of that annual renewal depends on attracting and selecting some of the greatest minds and deepest thinkers worldwide. We’ve come to expect that each fellows class helps reinforce the center’s reputation as the best at what it does. I’m delighted to say the 2019-20 class easily continues the tradition.”

One of 18 independent labs, centers and institutes operating under Stanford’s vice provost and dean of research, CASBS nurtures interdisciplinary research and exploration of pressing societal questions and problems through its single-year fellows program, as well as multi-year collaborative projects.

The 2019-20 fellows represent 20 U.S. institutions and seven international institutions and programs. The number of fellows may increase in the coming months as the 2019-20 class gets finalized.
