There are 5 comments on Roscoe Giles Named AAAS Fellow

  1. A couple of years ago, when BU organized its first ever University-wide presence in Boston’s Pride march, Professor Roscoe Giles was front and center. He talks diversity because for many years, he’s walked it.

  2. Congratulations, Roscoe! Your award is well-deserved, to put it mildly. Also deserving of recognition is your outstanding service as Chair of the Faculty Council at Boston University during fraught times of transition (2004-06).

  3. We need to get to under represented students
    in elementary and high school
    By the time they apply to college they are too far behind in math and science and it is difficult to catch up and they end up majoring in a less rigorous subject. I have seen some very bright students who were the top of their class in urban high school coming to college wanting to be an engineer but quickly realizing they are not prepared compared to classmates from better high schools . Urban high schools are not preparing these students at same level
    At same time many of these students don’t have the same home opportunities as their suburban
    counterparts. So I hope Prof Giles and Boston University and other schools work with urban middle and high schools to identify those students with strong math and science skills and keep their interest in STEM

  4. Congratulations, Prof. Giles.
    I remembering working in your lab on the Connection Machine and simulating the spin of atoms in a magnetic field (in the 1989-1991 timeframe). Well deserved honor!
