Analytical Chemistry Professors elected AAAS Fellows
Three analytical chemistry professors have been awarded the distinction of fellow from the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the world's largest general scientific society.
R. Graham Cooks, the Henry Bohn Hass Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, for his contributions to the fields of analytical chemistry and mass spectrometry through innovations in ionization, ion chemistry and instrumentation.
Scott A. McLuckey, the John A. Leighty Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, for his contributions to biological mass spectrometry through research in gas-phase ion chemistry and the development of novel instrumentation.
Paul B. Shepson, professor of chemistry and department head, for his contributions to the elucidation of important chemical and photochemical processes that play central roles in air pollution and climate change.
The distinction recognizes notable work to advance science or its applications, and fellows are elected by their peer members. The association will present 503 new fellows with the award on Feb. 19 during a special forum at its annual meeting in Washington, D.C.
Five other Purdue professors were elected this year.
