Dr. Shuiwang Ji, professor in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University, was among 20 faculty members from across the university to be named a 2021 Presidential Impact Fellow.

Initiated by President Michael K. Young, the award recognizes rising stars in their respective fields and those who embody the university commitment to advancing knowledge through transformational learning, innovation, discovery, and impact for Texas and the world. 

As part of the fifth class of Presidential Impact Fellows, Ji joins more than 75 colleagues recognized in prior years with one of the most prestigious scholarly impact awards bestowed upon Texas A&M faculty.
