Colorado State University Professor Awarded Fellowship in the American Association for the Advancement of Science

A Colorado State University professor recently was awarded the distinction of Fellow in the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The fellowship will be presented to atmospheric and hydrospheric sciences Professor David Randall at the association’s annual meeting in Boston Feb. 16.

Randall, a nationally renowned researcher in cloud-climate studies and climate dynamics, joined the faculty at Colorado State’s Department of Atmospheric Science in 1988, previously holding positions at MIT and NASA. His current research focuses on modeling studies of clouds and their role in the global climate system. Randall’s work emphasizes obtaining better physical understandings of how the climate system operates.

"I am honored to be awarded this fellowship in one of science’s most prominent and important organizations," Randall said.

The American Association for the Advancement of Science Fellowship is bestowed to individuals whose efforts toward advancing science or fostering applications are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished. With more than 138,000 members, the association is the world’s largest general science organization and also publisher of Science, a peer-reviewed journal.
