DENTON (UNT), Texas--University of North Texas Regents Professor of Chemistry Angela Wilson has been named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

“It is an honor to be selected and recognized for my work,” Wilson said.

Wilson, who also is the director of UNT’s Center for Advanced Scientific Computing and Modeling, was nominated for her contribution to the development and understanding of quantum chemistry methodologies.

Wilson’s research focuses on the development and understanding of computational chemistry methodology and the application of this methodology to examine problems in a wide range of areas including materials science, transition metal chemistry and environmental chemistry.

Narendra Dahotre, chair of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering in UNT’s College of Engineering, is UNT’s most recent prior AAAS Fellow.

The AAAS recognizes fellows for their contributions to science and technology. New fellows were announced in the journal Science in November 2012, and will be formally recognized at a Fellows Forum in Boston in February.
