Fellows are elected by their academic peers because of their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications.

Kubatko, a professor of statistics and evolution, ecology and organismal biology, and co-director of the Mathematical Biosciences Institute, was elected for distinguished contributions to the theory and methodology of phylogenetic analysis, especially with respect to incorporation of coalescent models.

Jouline, professor of microbiology, was elected for distinguished contributions to the fields of microbiology and computational biology, particularly for developing computational approaches to study signal transduction in bacteria.
