10 UC Riverside researchers recognized by the American Association for the Advancement of Science
Date:1/11/2011

RIVERSIDE, Calif. Ten researchers at the University of California, Riverside have been named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Including this year's fellows, the total number of UCR faculty members who have been recognized with AAAS Fellow distinction is 190.

Election as a fellow is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers. This year AAAS gave this honor to 503 of its members "because of their efforts toward advancing science applications that are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished."

The 2010 AAAS Fellows at UCR are:

Bahman Anvari, a professor of bioengineering: "For distinguished contributions to the field of biophotonics, particularly for development of technologies aimed at photoremediation of tissue malformations and cellular biophysical analysis."

Jay A. Farrell, a professor of electrical engineering: "For distinguished research, educational, and service contributions to the field of intelligent, autonomous vehicle analysis and design."

Ann Heinson, a research physicist: "For distinguished contributions to the field of high energy physics, including leadership that led to observation of single top quark production at the DZero experiment."

Robert I. Krieger, an extension specialist in entomology: "For distinguished contributions to the field of pesticide science in teaching, research, and particularly in the communication of principles of toxicology."

Manuela Martins-Green, a professor of cell biology: "For discovery and pioneering studies of chemokines in wound healing, studies of environmental toxins in healing, important contributions to tissue engineering, distinguished teaching and service."

Thomas A. Miller, a professor of entomology: "For distinguished contributions to the field of insect physiology and the application of transgenic and paratransgenetic techniques to control insect pests."

Allen Paine Mills, Jr., a professor of physics and astronomy: "For distinguished contributions in atomic and condensed matter physics, including seminal studies of positronium and the interactions of positrons with materials and material surfaces."

Aman Ullah, a professor of economics: "For outstanding contributions in mathematical sciences, for outstanding contribution to graduate study, and for contributions in the field of statistical inference."

Albert Z.H. Wang, a professor of electrical engineering: "For distinguished contributions to the field of electrostatic discharge (ESD) protection for integrated circuits and enabling technologies for radio-frequency systems-on-chip."

Laosheng Wu, a professor of soil science: "For distinguished contributions to soil and water sciences, especially in soil and water resources management and protection."

Five UC Riverside alumni were honored this year. Besides Martins-Green ('75 M.S.) and Miller ('62 B.A., '67 Ph.D.), Jack D. Keene ('69 B.A.) and Ann Marie Pendergast ('86 Ph.D.) of Duke University Medical Center and Paul M. Hasegawa ('70 B.S., '72 M.S., '76 Ph.D.) of Purdue University were named AAAS Fellows.

New fellows will be presented with an official certificate and a gold and blue (representing science and engineering, respectively) rosette pin on Feb. 19 during the annual meeting of the AAAS in Washington, D.C.

All the 2010 AAAS Fellows will be announced in the Jan. 28 issue of Science, a weekly magazine published by the AAAS.

The tradition of AAAS Fellows began in 1874. Currently, members can be considered for the rank of fellow if nominated by the steering groups of the AAAS's sections; by three fellows; or by the association's chief executive officer.
