The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest general scientific society and publisher of the Science family of journals, has elected 19 faculty from the University of Florida to its newest class, breaking previous records for the number of faculty awarded in a single year. The honor, which includes alumni such as Thomas Edison and W.E.B. DuBois, is among the most distinctive in academia and recognizes extraordinary impact and achievement across disciplines, from research, teaching, and technology, to administration in academia, industry and government, to excellence in communicating and interpreting science to the public.
Among the 19 selected as Fellows is Prabhat Mishra, Ph.D., a professor and a UF Research Foundation Professor. He is a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and an ACM Distinguished Scientist. He is also the Director of CISE Embedded Systems Lab. Dr. Mishra’s research interests include embedded and cyber-physical systems, hardware security and trust, computer architecture, energy-aware computing, machine learning, and quantum computing. His research enabled automated and scalable hardware validation using an effective combination of formal verification, test generation, and side-channel analysis to design secure and energy-efficient systems.
The 2022 class of AAAS Fellows are among 505 scientists, engineers and innovators who have been recognized for their scientifically and socially distinguished achievements.
“An important measure of the university’s prowess is the accolades its faculty members receive from national and international organizations,” said David Norton, vice president for UF Research. “The awarding of Fellow from AAAS to so many UF researchers this year is the result of the remarkable achievements of these individuals and reflects very positively on UF as we strive to become the best public research university in the country.”
