Congratulations to Jim Smith, one of two MSU faculty elected an AAAS Fellow for 2017 by the American Association for the Advancement of Science. This national recognition is awarded to researchers for their efforts to advance science or its applications.

"These individuals are leaders in their disciplines and representative of the outstanding quality of work being done at MSU," said Stephen Hsu, vice president for Research and Graduate Studies. "Their research has an important impact on the frontiers of human knowledge."

Smith, an entomologist and professor in the Lyman Briggs College, was recognized for contributing to the field of entomology evolution and for developing novel evolution pedagogies, along with sustained high excellence as an undergraduate teacher and mentor.

AAAS named 391 new fellows and will honor them on Feb. 18 during the 2017 AAAS annual meeting in Boston, Massachusetts.
