Six named IEEE Fellows

Six IEEE Fellows

Six current faculty members of Texas A&M University’s Dwight Look College of Engineering have been named Fellows of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

Those receiving the prestigious honor include: Dr. Timothy Davis (computer science and engineering); Dr. Anthony Guiseppi-Elie (biomedical engineering); Dr. Jiang Hu (electrical and computer engineering); Dr. Peng Li (electrical and computer engineering); Dr. Daniele Mortari (aerospace engineering); and Dr. Xi Zhang (electrical and computer engineering). Guiseppi-Elie, who joined the Texas A&M faculty in August of last year, is on the list under his previous university, Clemson University.

“The IEEE Fellow is one of the most prestigious honors of the IEEE, and it is bestowed upon a very limited number of senior members,” said M. Katherine Banks, vice chancellor and dean of engineering. “Having so many Texas A&M engineering faculty members named fellows in one year speaks to the excellence we have within our ranks.”

The IEEE Fellow distinction is bestowed upon a very limited number of senior members who have contributed importantly to the advancement or application of engineering, science and technology, bringing significant value to society. The number of IEEE Fellows elevated in a year is no more than one-tenth of one percent of the total IEEE voting membership. 

Davis, professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, was honored for contributions to sparse matrix algorithms and software.

Guiseppi-Eli, TEES Professor and head of the Department of Biomedical Engineering, was honored for contributions to organic electronic materials in biotechnology and biomedicine.

Hu, professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, was honored for contributions to gate, interconnect, and clock network optimization in VLSI circuits.

Li, professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, was honored for contributions to the analysis and modeling of integrated circuits and systems.

Mortari, professor in the Department of Aerospace Engineering, was honored for contributions to navigational aspects of space systems.

Zhang, professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, was honored for contributions to quality of service in mobile wireless networks.

IEEE is the world’s leading professional association for advancing technology for humanity. Through its 400,000 members in 160 countries, IEEE is a leading authority on a wide variety of areas ranging from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power and consumer electronics.

Dedicated to the advancement of technology, IEEE publishes 30 percent of the world’s literature in the electrical and electronics engineering and computer science fields, and has developed more than 900 active industry standards. The association also sponsors or co-sponsors nearly 400 international technical conferences each year. For more information about IEEE or the IEEE Fellow program, visit the IEEE website.
