Patricia Thiel (1953-2020)
It is with great sadness that we heard of the passing of Prof. Patricia (Pat) A. Thiel last Monday. Pat was a Distinguished Professor at Iowa State University and Ames Laboratory. An outstanding scientist recently elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, she was a close collaborator and generous friend to many of us in the Network. Passionate about science and a wonderful person, she will be greatly missed. Our thoughts go to her family. A fuller obituary will follow in due course.
