Updated: November 27 2017

Mary Frank Fox, ADVANCE professor in the School of Public Policy at Georgia Institute of Technology, was recently elected as Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Election as a fellow of AAAS is an honor bestowed by the council of scientists of AAAS.

Fellows are recognized for meritorious efforts to advance science or its applications. Fox was recognized “for distinguished research on women and men in scientific organizations and occupations, and for national leadership on issues related to diversity, equity, and excellence in science.”

Fox’s research has introduced and established ways in which scientists’ participation and performance reflect and are affected by the social and organizational settings in which they are educated and work, with significant implications for science and technology policy. Her research is published in over 60 different journals, books, and collections. She has brought to the national forefront issues of diversity, equity, and excellence through her work with advisory boards and panels including those as Member of the Social Science Advisory Board, National Center for Women and Information Technology; Council Member, Section on Science, Knowledge, and Technology, American Sociological Association; Advisory Board, Expanding Computer Education Pathways Alliance; Editorial Board Member of Social Studies of Science; and elected member of the AAAS Electorate Nominating Committee, Division on Social, Economic, and Political Sciences.
