Prof. Kai Liu Awarded Prestigious AAAS Fellowship for Work on Nanomagnetism

Kai Liu, Georgetown professor and McDevitt Chair in the Department of Physics, has been elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science  (AAAS)  

AAAS, formed in 1848, is the world’s largest multidisciplinary scientific society and a leading publisher of cutting-edge research through its Science family of journals. It has over 120,000 members in more than 91 countries, 264 affiliated societies and academies of science, and serves 10 million individuals globally. Each year AAAS bestows upon a select group of its members across all disciplinary areas the lifetime honor of being an elected Fellow, a tradition dating back to 1874, in recognition of their distinguished achievements in advancing science or its applications.

Liu is being recognized “for distinguished contributions to the field of nanomagnetism and spintronics, particularly for understanding of magnetic materials and nanostructures.” He is one of 27 members elected from the AAAS Section on Physics this year, which also include Nobel laureate Arthur McDonald. Liu is one of a few Georgetown professors to have received this honor.
