The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) recently awarded the distinction of Fellow to John J. McCarthy, senior vice provost for academic affairs and dean of the Graduate School, and Michael J. Maroney, professor of chemistry, “for their efforts toward advancing science applications that are deemed scientifically or socially distinguished.” McCarthy, a Distinguished University Professor who has served as vice provost and dean since 2012, was recognized for his “distinguished contributions to linguistic science, particularly in formal models of phonological representation, and in developing a new scientific paradigm for constraint-based natural language grammars.” See here for more information about our distinguished colleague.
