The ACS Fellows Program recognizes outstanding achievements in and contributions to science, the profession and the society. The 2019 ACS Fellows will be honored at a special ceremony during the ACS National Meeting and Expo in San Diego on Aug. 26.
Casey, an environmental geochemist, received the Geochemical Society’s 2016 Clair C. Patterson Award and the 2010 Werner Stumm Medal for technical innovation from the European Association of Geochemists. He is a fellow of both the Geochemical Society and the European Association of Geochemists. In 2019, a new mineral, “caseyite,” was named for Casey in recognition of his research on the vanadium and aluminum compounds contained in the mineral.
