Georgia Tech faculty continue to be recognized as among the most respected in their field. Last month, the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) named four — in biology, computing and engineering — to its 2013 class of fellows

Election as a fellow of AAAS, the world’s largest general scientific society, is an honor bestowed upon members by their peers. Fellows are recognized for meritorious efforts to advance science or its applications.

New fellows include:

  • School of Interactive Computing Professor Henrik Christensen, cited “for contributions to applied estimation methods in mapping, robot localization, visual tracking and recognition, as well as national-level leadership of the robotics community.”
  • School of Biology Professor Mark Hay, cited “for distinguished contributions in ecology, particularly for developing marine chemical ecology and for elucidating how chemical cues and signals structure populations, communities, and ecosystems.”
  • School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Professor Hang Lu, cited “for distinguished contributions to the field of engineering systems for high-throughput quantitative and systems biology, particularly for microfluidics, automation, image-based science, and phenomics.”
  • School of Aerospace Engineering Professor Suresh Menon, cited “for distinguished and innovative contributions to the field of multi-scale computational simulation and modeling of turbulent combustion in power and propulsion systems.”
