Pew Marine Fellow Daniel Conley Named to Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences

Daniel Conley has been named a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Conley, a 2010 Pew fellow in marine conservation, is a professor of biogeochemistry at Lund University in Lund, Sweden. His research focuses on the impact of human activity and climate change on nutrient cycles and marine ecosystems. Conley's Pew fellowship project is designed to evaluate mitigation measures to relieve the effects of coastal water over-enriched by nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus, causing water quality problems in the Baltic Sea.

Conley and five others were elected to the academy at its general meeting Jan. 15. According to the academy website, “being elected a member of the Academy constitutes exclusive recognition of successful achievements. These could be prominent research in mathematics, natural science, engineering, social science or humanities, but also outstanding services to science.”

Additionally, each year, the academy awards the Nobel Prizes in Physics and Chemistry, the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, the Crafoord Prize, and a number of other large honors.

Agenda for America

A collection of resources to help federal, state, and local decision-makers set an achievable agenda for all Americans

Quick View

Data-driven policymaking is not just a tool for finding new solutions for emerging challenges, it makes government more effective and better able to serve the public interest. In the coming months, President Joe Biden and the 117th Congress will tackle a number of environmental, health, public safety, and fiscal and economic issues—nearly all of them complicated by the COVID-19 pandemic. To help solve specific, systemic problems in a nonpartisan fashion, Pew has compiled a series of briefings and recommendations based on our research, technical assistance, and advocacy work across America.

Data-driven policymaking is not just a tool for finding new solutions for difficult challenges. When states serve their traditional role as laboratories of innovation, they increase the American people’s confidence that the government they choose—no matter the size—can be effective, responsive, and in the public interest.
