The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has named its new class of AAAS Fellows. Election as a AAAS Fellow is a lifetime honor in recognition of diverse accomplishments, including, research, leadership, teaching, mentoring, fostering collaborations, and advancing public understanding of science. Fellows are nominated by AAAS’ 24 sections, three previous Fellows, or by the CEO of AAAS—and are subject to approval by the AAAS Council.
Although most of those elected as Fellows are recognized for their scientific research accomplishments, AAAS’ broad membership and diverse sections include a number of individuals associated with ASTC-member organizations or relevant to our field, including the following:
Mónica Feliú Mójer (Section on Societal Impacts of Science & Engineering)
Director of Communications and Public Engagement, Ciencia Puerto Rico (news)
Director of Inclusive Science Communication and Engagement, Science Communication Lab
Patrick Hamilton (Section on Education)
Director of Climate Change, Energy, and the Environment
Science Museum of Minnesota
Asheley R. Landrum (Section on General Interest in Science & Engineering)
Associate Professor of Science Communication
Texas Tech University
Ainissa Ramirez (Section on Education)
Keynote Speaker, Scientist, and Science Communicator
The 2022 class of AAAS Fellows includes 505 scientists, engineers, and innovators from around the world spanning scientific disciplines. Each will receive an official certificate and a gold and blue rosette pin to commemorate their election (representing science and engineering, respectively) and will be celebrated in Washington, D.C. later this year.
