Congratulations to HEMI Fellow Mark Robbins on being named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science this past month.
Robbins is a professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. His research focuses on the physics of condensed matters, and is being recognized for “using simulations to reveal the microscopic origins of macroscopic behavior” of matter. He is also a part of the Polymers Collaborative Materials Research Group within the Center for Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments.
The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) is an organization that seeks to bring scientists together to enhance communication between scientists of different fields throughout the world to further advance scientific research. Fellows are chosen by their peers.
He will be formally recognized in February during the 2018 AAAS Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas.
