Thayer School of Engineering Dean Joseph Helble has been named a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest general scientific society and the publisher of the journal Science. AAAS cites Helble “for contributions in the areas of air pollution, aerosols, nanoscale ceramics, and air quality, and for excellence in teaching and professional service.”

“The recognition accorded Dean Helble by one of the world’s preeminent scientific organizations reflects his achievement as a leading researcher, teacher, and scholar,” says President Phil Hanlon '77. “Joe has inspired students, advanced knowledge in the field of chemical engineering, and fostered applications for environmental protection and betterment. His accomplishments continue to bring distinction to Dartmouth.”

“It is an honor to be recognized by AAAS for our efforts to understand the formation, dynamics, and chemistry of fine particles, and to have our contributions to teaching recognized as well,” says Helble, a professor of engineering. “I have been privileged to work with talented students and colleagues in both research and education, and this honor is an acknowledgement of the contributions of many, over many years.”
