She is being honoured for "extraordinary contributions to Quaternary palaeoecology, particularly in reconstructing landscapes across the periglacial northern hemisphere based on pollen and plant macrofossil assemblages".

It is great to see Hilary's meticulous work being given recognition.

Hilary is only the third person based in Norway to be elected a Fellow of the AAAS; the other two are Edvard Moser (NTNU) and Per Andersen (Oslo).

Congratulations Hilary!
