David Darwin, Distinguished Professor and Chairman of the Civil, Environmental and Architectural Engineering Department, will be honored during the 2017 AAAS Annual Meeting in Boston along with fellow Distinguished Professor of Physics & Astronomy, Alice Bean. They were formally announced as new fellows in the journal Science.
Election as a fellow is an honor bestowed upon members by their peers. This year, AAAS awarded 391 members this honor because of their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications.
Darwin was honored for distinguished contributions to the field of concrete structural behavior and durability, particularly for bond and anchorage of reinforcement, and cracking and corrosion control.
“I have been proud to be a member of AAAS for many years, and it is a truly fine organization,” Darwin said. “I’m very appreciative of this recognition.”
KU now has 16 current faculty members listed as fellows on the AAAS website.
