Four researchers from Stanford University have been named fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). AAAS describes its Fellows as “standout individuals” who have “advanced scientific excellence, tackled complex societal challenges, and pushed boundaries that will reap benefits for years to come.”

This year, AAAS named 505 new fellows. The four fellows from Stanford are:

DAVID GOLDHABER-GORDON – For singular discoveries involving strong electron-electron correlations and topology in nanostructures and twisted bilayer graphene.

Goldhaber-Gordon is a professor of physics in the School of Humanities and Sciences and principal investigator at the Stanford Institute for Materials and Energy Sciences at SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory.

MATTHEW O. JACKSON – For distinguished contributions to the field of economics and public policy, particularly derived from the structure and dynamics of complex interaction networks.

Jackson is a professor of economics in the School of Humanities and Sciences, senior fellow of the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR), and member of the Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute.

ROSAMOND NAYLOR – For outstanding research and distinguished contributions to improving global food security and protecting the environment.

Naylor is the William Wrigley Professor in the Stanford Doerr School of Sustainability and senior fellow of the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment and the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies.

YURI SUZUKI – For distinguished contributions to the field of condensed matter physics, particularly for the creation of new materials with designed properties.

Suzuki is a professor of applied physics in the School of Humanities and Sciences and a member of Stanford Bio-X.
