Our very own Rebecca Abergel has been named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), an lifetime distinction bestowed upon the society’s members by their peers.
4 other UC Berkeley faculty members have been awarded and featured in this week's Berkeley News:
"The five are among 443 members awarded the honor because of their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications. Founded in 1848, the AAAS is the world’s largest general scientific society and publisher of Science and five other journals."
The article highlighted her work and leadership within the department and at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
