Six Dwight Look College of Engineering faculty members named 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 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. More
