In September 2016, Professor Michael Fellows was appointed as a Companion of the Order of Australia for eminent services to higher education, particularly in the field of theoretical computer science.  Fellows is professor at the Department of Informatics at the University of Bergen (UiB).

The Order of Australia is the only Australian order of chivalry. It was established on 14 February 1975 by Elizabeth II, Queen of Australia, to recognise Australian citizens and other persons for achievement, meritorious service, or for both.

Professor Fellows is recognised as a leading academic, researcher and author in the field of theoretical computer science. He has been professor of computer science at UiB since January 2016. He arrived in Bergen as part of the Bergen Research Foundation's BFS Toppforsk programme.
