Professor John Harte is one of four UC Berkeley faculty members named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the association announced this week (Monday, Nov. 24).
The honor recognizes distinguished efforts in the scientific and social applications of science, for which the new fellows were nominated and elected by their AAAS peers. This year a total of 401 AAAS members were awarded the distinction. Professor Harte was recognized for distinguished contributions to environmental sciences utilizing mathematical modeling and theory development, and to policy studies to connect science to its societal implications.
With the election of these four fellows, UC Berkeley now counts 224 AAAS fellows among its ranks. The new fellows will be presented with certificates and pins on Saturday, Feb. 14, at the AAAS Fellows Forum during the 2015 AAAS annual meeting in San Jose. AAAS, founded in 1848, is the world’s largest general scientific society, and publisher of the journal Science. The association includes 254 affiliated societies and academies of science.
