The Tyler Prize for Environmental Achievement is one of the first international premier awards for environmental science, environmental health and energy. Simon Levin, Moffett Professor of Biology at Princeton University, received the prize "for his research revealing the complexity of, and relationships between, species and ecosystems. His work has been fundamental in the crafting of environmental policies and advancing the study of complex ecosystems – the myriad relationships and interactions in nature."

Levin was Chair of IIASA’s governing Council from 2003 until 2009, Vice-Chair from 2009-2013, and Chair of the US Committee for IIASA throughout this time. He also  collaborates with IIASA researchers, particularly Ulf Dieckmann, in the field of modeling ecological and evolutionary dynamics.
