BYU education faculty member named fellow of American Psychological Association

Tim Smith, a faculty member in the Brigham Young University Department of Counseling Psychology and Special Education, was recently elected a Fellow of the American Psychological Association.

Fellowship is a peer-nominated distinction honoring research achievement and professional contributions. Selection as a Fellow of the American Psychological Association indicates an “unusual and outstanding contribution or performance in the field of psychology,” advancing the field and incorporating innovative ideas, according to the APA.

Smith became one of only six BYU faculty members to receive this recognition, and is the first to be nominated by APA Division 17: Counseling Psychology.

His contributions to psychology include published research and serving on national committees, editing a national journal, chairing a national council of journal editors, mentoring graduate students and helping  these students publish their research. Most recently he assisted in developing a graduate program in counseling psychology at a university in Uganda through a Fulbright grant.

The cloth masks many are sporting these days offer some protection against COVID-19. However, they typically provide much less than the professional N95 masks used by healthcare workers. That may soon change. Recently, students from BYU’s College of Engineering teamed up with Nanos Foundation to develop a nanofiber membrane that can be sandwiched between the cloth pieces in a homemade mask, increasing efficacy up to 99%.
