Arizona professors receive recognition from the science association known as the American Association for the Advancement of Science

The American Association for the Advancement of Science recently released its list of its 2023 Class of Fellows. In total, 502 scientists, engineers and innovators were honored for their scientific and social achievements.

University of Arizona professors Daniel Abay and Dante Lauretta were selected for their contributions to astronomy, planetary science and astrobiology.

Arizona State University professor Kay Reed also received recognition for her work studying human evolution.

“It's a real honour. I felt overwhelmed, but it was really nice to be recognized in this way where other people voted for me and felt my work was very good.”

According to Reed, her work focuses on reconstructing the ancient environments of hominin ancestors, which is one of the topics related to studying the interaction between organisms and their environments.

Andrew Black from the Science Society.

“So we're actually celebrating the 150th anniversary of AAAS Fellows, so the first class of fellows was named in 1874. So this is really one of the oldest and most prestigious honors in the scientific community,” he said.

According to Black, many see this as a major accomplishment for work that has progressed throughout one's career.
