Dr. A.J. Munoz-Vazquez, assistant professor in the Department of Multidisciplinary Engineering at Texas A&M University, was elected senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in the fall of 2021.

The IEEE is the world’s largest technical professional organization for the advancement of technology. As a plural and diverse organization around the world it provides the opportunity for engineers to collaborate and learn about the work of other scientists and professionals in the field of electrical and electronic engineering. Senior member is the highest grade available to which IEEE members may self-nominate or be nominated.

 In order to become a senior member, engineers must have been in professional practice for at least 10 years (five with a Ph.D.) and have shown significant performance over a period of at least five years.

Munoz-Vazquez has served as an associate editor for IEEE Latin America Transactions and currently is an associate for the International Journal of Control, Automation and Systems. His research interests include robotics and autonomous systems, sliding mode techniques for control and observation, fractional calculus applications and Lyapunov stability theory.

“(IEEE senior membership) constitutes a motivation to do my best in both personal and professional aspects, as well as to support future generations of outstanding professionals,” said Munoz-Vazquez.
