Biography

Regents' Professor Robert E. Page, Jr. is Provost Emertus and Foundation Chair of Life Sciences. He is also a Distinguished Sustainability Scholar in ASU's Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability. He previously served as the Vice Provost and Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (2011-2013) and the Founding Director of  the School of Life Sciences (2004-2011). He joined ASU in 2004 after spending 15 years on the faculty of the University of California at Davis where he served as Chair of Entomology from 1999-2004. His background is in behavior and population genetics and the focus of his current research is on the evolution of complex social behavior. Using the honey bee as a model, he has dissected their complex foraging division of labor at all levels of biological organization from gene networks to complex social interactions.

Professor Page has published more than 230 research papers and articles, five books, and is listed as a “highly-cited author” by the ISI Web of Knowledge, representing the top 1/2 of 1 percent of publishing scientists. He received the Alexander von Humboldt Senior Scientist Award (the Humboldt Prize) in 1995, the highest honor given by the German government to foreign scientists. In 2010 he was elected to the Leopoldina - the German National Academy of Science, the longest continuing academy in the world. He is also an Elected Foreign Member of the Brazilian Academy of Science (1999), a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (1991), Elected Member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (2006), a Fellow of the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin (2009-2010) and a Fellow of the California Academy of Sciences (2016).
