Professor B. Scott Gaudi

Scott Gaudi , Thomas Jefferson Professor for Discovery and Space Exploration and a University Distinguished Scholar, has been named as a 2024 American Astronomical Society fellow. Prof. Gaudi has been acknowledged for his key scientific contributions to the development of the field of exoplanet detection and characterization, extensive public service leadership in exoplanet science via community building, and strategic and mission planning. Twenty-one researchers were named fellows for 2024.

The 2024 AAS Fellows now represent the fifth class recognized for enhancing and sharing humanity’s scientific understanding of the universe through personal achievement and extraordinary service to the astronomical sciences and to the AAS. This is an honor bestowed on less than 0.5% of AAS’s membership each year.

"The 2024 AAS Fellows class highlights the incredible work being done in our field, both in critical research advances and in tireless and devoted service to the community." said AAS President Kelsey Johnson (University of Virginia). "It's a privilege to recognize the contributions of these members of our community, and we are honored to have them as colleagues."
