Kitty L. Milliken, a senior research scien­tist at the Bureau of Economic Geology (BEG), received the AAPG’s 2015 Robert R. Berg Outstanding Research Award. The award is given in recognition of a singular achievement in petroleum geoscience research. For Milliken, the award recognized her contribution to improving the understanding of how diagenetic processes convert sediments to sedimentary rocks

Milliken was also the co-recipient of the Wallace E. Pratt Memorial Award, a recognition that honors the authors of the best AAPG Bulletin article published each year. Tongwei Zhang, a research associate at the BEG, was among the co-authors.
