Tim Heckman, chair of the Department and the inaugural Dr. A. Hermann Pfund Professoris, is among 489 distinguished scholars recognized this year as fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, or AAAS, the world’s largest general scientific society. Fellows are selected annually for their contributions to their respective fields and the body of science as a whole.

Heckman is being recognized for his contribution to the understanding of galaxy development and its relationship to the properties of galaxies, particularly supermassive black holes.

Three other JHU professors were also named AAAS fellows this year.
