2016-12-02 11:50:53

Brad Cox's election as AAAS Fellow is celebrated in UVAToday.  From the article:

"Cox was honored for his contributions to the field of experimental high-energy physics, particularly in the discovery of the Higgs particle.

The tradition of AAAS Fellows began in 1874 and is considered a prestigious distinction among scientists. This year, 391 of the 10 million-member organization – the world’s largest general scientific society – have earned this honor for their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science. Members earn the rank of fellow after a nomination process by their peers within their fields or by selection of AAAS’s chief executive officer."
