Santa Barbara, CA

Evelyn Hu, professor of electrical and computer engineering and materials,

at the University of California, Santa Barbara has been elected a fellow --- the highest membership grade --- in the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

The association honored its new fellows during this year's annual meeting in Anaheim recently. They were chosen for their efforts in advancing science or fostering applications that are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished.

According to AAAS, the professor was commended specifically for her effective leadership of multidisciplinary research as well as significant contributions to research.

This is Hu's third fellow grade, having received the honor in the American Physical Society and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.

The professor earned a Ph.D. in physics from Columbia University and an honorary Doctor of Engineering from Glasgow University.

Before joining UC Santa Barbara in 1984, she worked at AT&T Bell Laboratories developing microfabrication and nanofabrication techniques to facilitate the study of superconducting and semiconducting devices and circuits.

She is the director of QUEST, a National Science Foundation Science and Technology Center for Quantized Electronic Structures. She also heads Nanotech,

the UC Santa Barbara component of the National Science Foundation's National Nanofabrication Users Network.

Hu served as vice chair from 1989 to 1992 and chair from 1992 to 1994 of UC Santa Barbara's electrical and computer engineering department.

She received the department's Tau Beta Pi Outstanding Faculty Award for the 1989-90 academic year. This academic year, UC Santa Barbara faculty members honored Hu with a Distinguished Teaching Award.

Founded in 1848, AAAS represents the world's largest federation of scientists and has more than 144,000 individual members. Its mission is to advance scientific and technological excellence across all disciplines, and the public's understanding of science and technology.
