Booske earned the honor for his distinguished contributions to the fields of plasma science, vacuum electronics, and microwave-materials interactions, and for championing best educational practices for generations of students, both institutionally and nationally.

Fellow status, dating back to 1874, is bestowed annually on members of AAAS who are nominated by their peers and recognized for their efforts to advance science and society. Last fall, 505 engineers and innovators who are members of AAAS were selected as lifetime fellows. Each is expected to maintain the highest standards of scientific integrity and professional ethics.

In addition to Booske, UW-Madison’s honorees include John Perepezko a professor of materials science and engineering; Nihal Ammad, professor of dermatology; Remzi Arpaci-Dusseau, professor of computer sciences; Kyoung-Shin Choi, professor of chemistry; and Wei Xu, professor of cancer research.
