When an accomplished faculty member takes a new position with another institution, it typically isn’t cause for celebration.
However, when that institution is the National Science Foundation and the professor can continue working with their school—as is the case with the UT’s Lynne Parker—it is a double bonus for the university.
Five UT professors have been named by the American Association for the Advancement of Science to its 2014 class of fellows for their teaching and research.
This year, 401 members have been awarded this honor by AAAS because of their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications. The new fellows will be presented with an official certificate February 14 at the AAAS annual meeting in San Jose, California.
