Seven University of California, Irvine researchers (including ICS Professors Rina Dechter, Paul Dourish, Annie Qu and Padhraic Smyth) – working in fields as diverse as atmospheric chemistry, artificial intelligence, big data, and climate and ecosystem science – have been named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world’s largest general scientific society.
A total of 564 AAAS members are being honored this year for their efforts to further science or its applications. The just-elected fellows will receive an official certificate and a gold and blue rosette pin and will be celebrated later this year at an in-person gathering when it’s feasible from a public health and safety perspective. The new class will also be featured this month in the AAAS News & Notes column in Science.
“Congratulations to the seven UCI researchers named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science,” said Pramod Khargonekar, UCI vice chancellor for research. “These scholars are responsible for groundbreaking research that has helped UCI earn a stellar reputation among its peer institutions around the world.”
