Prof. Colin Norman has been elected as a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. This is lifetime distinction in honor of his invaluable contributions to science and technology.

Fellows are elected each year by their peers serving on the Council of AAAS, the organization’s member-run governing body. The tradition of electing AAAS Fellows began in 1874. Since then, the recognition has gone to thousands of distinguished scientists, such as astronomer Maria Mitchell, elected in 1875, inventor Thomas Edison (1878), anthropologist Margaret Mead (1934), computer scientist Grace Hopper (1963) and popular science author Jared Diamond (2000).
