Congratulations to Nitin Samarth on being elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He joins 9 other faculty who have received this honor in the past.

The American Association for the Advancement of Science is the world's largest general scientific society and the publisher of the journal Science. Election as an AAAS Fellow is an honor bestowed upon members by their peers. This year, 702 Fellows were selected for their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications. The Fellows will receive certificates and pins on Feb. 16 at the AAAS Fellows Forum during the 2013 AAAS Annual Meeting in Boston.

Samarth was chosen for contributions to the emerging field of semiconductor spintronics, particularly for the design and measurement of mesoscopic magnetoelectronic devices.
