KAUST Professor David Keyes has been elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world's largest general scientific society. Keyes was honored for fundamental research contributions at the interface of parallel computing and numerical analysis and his service to the mathematical sciences profession.

The Fellows, announced on November 27, 2018, were recognized during the week of February 18 at the AAAS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., where they received an official certificate and the AAAS Fellows' gold and blue rosette pin, the colors of which represent the fields of science and engineering, respectively.

This year's Fellows, who represent a broad swath of scientific disciplines, were selected for diverse accomplishments including pioneering research; leadership within their field; teaching and mentoring; fostering collaborations, and advancing public understanding of science.

"I feel greatly humbled and honored to receive this award," Keyes said. "AAAS fellowship has significance beyond fellowship in the mathematical societies of SIAM and AMS because of the breadth of science and engineering that AAAS encompasses. I have deep respect for my academic peers, other new Fellows and for the AAAS mission—to advance science, engineering and innovation throughout the world."
