Dr. Carol Hall

Dr. Carol Hall, Camille Dreyfus Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at North Carolina State University, has been elected as a Fellow of the American Association for Advancement of Science (AAAS), the world’s largest scientific society and publisher of journal science.

AAAS Fellows are elected by their peers who serve on the Council of AAAS, the organization’s member-run governing body, for having shown “scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications.”

Hall was elected for her distinguished contributions to the field of thermodynamics using statistical methods and computer simulation methods to solve engineering problems involving macromolecules and complex fluids.

She joined the NC State faculty in 1985 and was one of the first women to be appointed to a chemical engineering faculty in the United States. Hall is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, and a Fellow of AIChE and the American Physical Society. She earned her B.S. in physics from Cornell University and Ph.D. in physics from Stony Brook University.

With her appointment, the College of Engineering at NC State will have nine active faculty members who are AAAS Fellows.

Hall will be recognized at the AAAS annual meeting in Seattle, Washington on Feb. 15, 2020.
