Queens Birthday Honours for Professor Michael Raupach

12 June 2016

Professor Mike Raupach, who died in February 2015, has been honoured with an AO in the latest Queen's Birthday Honours list. 
Professor Raupach was a world-class climate researcher who led the ANU Climate Change Institute for a year after a distinguished career at CSIRO. He was awarded his AO shortly before he died.
Current Climate Change Institute Director Mark Howden paid tribute to Professor Raupach and said the award was a well-deserved honour for a great scientist.
"Mike was an outstanding scientist whose work was characterised by being able to bring basic principles of science together to deliver new insight and new technologies that are of real benefit to all Australians," Professor Howden said.
"Mike was also a wonderful human being, whose generosity in mentoring others was widely known and appreciated."
Vice-Chancellor Professor Brian Schmidt AC congratulated the latest recipients and all ANU alumni who have been honoured in the Queen's Birthday Honours.
"To be recognised in the Order of Australia is a great honour and wonderful recognition of the great contribution to Australia and society," Professor Schmidt said.
"On behalf of the University, I congratulate Brian, John, Vincent and Denis, and the friends and family of Mike Raupach, for their magnificent contribution to the University and to Australia."
