Professor Roberta Humphreys was made an honorary fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society. This designation honors Astronomers outside of Great Britain who have made important contributions to the field of Astronomy.

The designation is typically in recognition of service to astronomical and geophysical sciences such as through distinguished leadership of a school, observatory or laboratory; outstanding services to national or international scientific organizations; exceptionally important work in editing scientific publications; influential work in education and public outreach in these sciences; or specially outstanding distinguished work in the history of these sciences.
