Story PhotoDr. David R. Shaw, director of the GeoResources Institute and the Northern Gulf Institute at Mississippi State University, was recently selected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Receiving the highest professional honor from the association, Dr. Shaw is recognized for efforts to advance science and its applications.

Dr. Shaw has developed a national reputation for his research leadership in the areas of agriculture, food and renewable resources. The institutes he leads focus on understanding natural and managed systems using geospatial technologies, as well as upland-watershed systems, coastal waters, habitats, resources, and hazards.

Having adopted the use of spatial technologies in his early MSU research, Shaw was named as the director of the Remote Sensing Technologies Center in 1998. As head of the multi-disciplinary GeoResources Institute, which succeeded the RSTC, he has focused on developing applications of spatial technologies in site-specific agriculture and in assessing natural resources.

In 2007, the Northern Gulf Institute was formed. NGI is a NOAA collaborative that also includes the University of Southern Mississippi, Louisiana State and Florida State Universities, and the Dauphin Island Sea Laboratory near Mobile, Ala.
