David Sholl, the John F. Brock III School Chair in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering (ChBE), was selected by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) as a 2020 Fellow for his contributions to the field of chemical and molecular engineering. Specifically, Sholl connected atomic-scale modeling with practical applications in chemical separations, energy storage and data reproducibility. He is one of two Georgia Tech professors to receive the honor of being a 2020 AAAS Fellow.

Sholl first arrived at Tech in 2008 as the Michael E. Tennenbaum Chair and GRA Eminent Scholar in Energy Sustainability, and his primary research interests are acid-gas interactions with materials, molecular modeling and porous materials. He has published over 370 papers with over 20,000 citations, and he has given more than 280 invited talks and seminars. In 2019, Sholl was named as a Fellow for the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, and he has also served as a senior editor for Langmuir, a journal published by the American Chemical Society.

“I am honored to have the privilege of being named an AAAS Fellow. More than that, I am grateful for my team of students, postdoctoral researchers, colleagues and everyone else who has contributed to our group’s mission of working towards more environmentally and economically sustainable paths for generating and storing energy.” - David Sholl

Known for publishing the well-known magazine and journal “Science,” AAAS is an international non-profit and the world’s largest scientific society. The organization promotes scientific cooperation, freedom, ethics and outreach. Every year since 1874, the AAAS council elects distinguished members to receive the lifetime honor of being a Fellow. Fellows are made up of an array of scientists, innovators and engineers who are recognized for their efforts of advancing science or applying it in service to society.
