Dean Steven Currall Elected as Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science

Steven C. Currall, dean and professor of the Graduate School of Management, is among 10 faculty members from the University of California, Davis, that have been elected in the 2013 class of fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

Established in 1848, AAAS is the world’s largest general scientific society with a mission to “advance science and serve society” through initiatives in science policy, international programs and science education. Exemplifying creativity and breakthrough discovery, the newly elected UC Davis fellows’ contributions to science and society range from X-ray synchrotrons to plant biology and primate behavior to cancer care.

Currall was cited for his scholarly analysis of public awareness of new technologies, and for leadership of academic-industry programs to ensure societal benefits of new science and engineering innovations. A behavioral scientist, Currall has conducted research and taught for more than two decades on organizational psychology topics such as innovation, emerging technologies, negotiation and corporate governance. He is lead author of the book: “Organized Innovation: A Blueprint for Renewing America’s Prosperity” (Oxford University Press) to be published in January 2014.

Currall is the second Graduate School of Management faculty member elected as an AAAS Fellow. Professor Nicole Biggart was elected in November 2012.
