Eleven promising young members of the UW–Madison faculty have been honored with Romnes Faculty Fellowships. Professor John Berry is among the 11 faculty award recipients.

Romnes awards recognize exceptional faculty members who have earned tenure within the last six years. The awards are supported by the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF).

The award is named for the late H.I. Romnes, former chairman of the board of AT&T and former president of the WARF Board of Trustees.

John Berry, professor of chemistry, studies coordination chemistry and catalysis. The Berry Group has developed novel synthetic, spectroscopic and computational methods to examine structure and bonding in compounds that are unstable, highly reactive, or simply show unusual properties. Berry teaches inorganic and general chemistry, serves as a journal editor and enjoys writing music.
