Clark Professor Hibbett Named American Assoc. for Advancement of Science Fellow

Friday, November 30, 2018

 

David Hibbett

Clark University biology professor David Hibbett has been named a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

He is also included on the 2018 List of Highly Cited Researchers from Clarivate Analytics.

"Both of these honors mean a lot to me. It is humbling to be elected as an AAAS Fellow and to be included in the Highly Cited Researchers list. I am deeply grateful to the colleagues who supported my nomination for the AAAS Fellowship, and gratified to think that some of my work may have been useful to other scientists,” said Hibbett.

Hibbett is the seventh Clark faculty member to be named an AAAS Fellow since 1958; the last Clark scholar to receive this honor was Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Davis Baird in 2010.

About Hibbett

Professor Hibbett, who has been at Clark since 1999, is considered one of today’s leading researchers in the analysis of fungal relationships through DNA analysis.

He concentrates his lab work in evolutionary biology and ecology of fungi. Professor Hibbett is a Fellow of the Mycological Society of America, and is past president of the Society, and served as a Grass Fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University.

He recently collaborated with the Worcester EcoTarium to create a permanent “Fungal Tree of Life” exhibit (which includes artwork by Clark alumnus Amy Yeager ’17) and is working on a book on mushroom evolution for a general audience.
