Electrochemical Society Award for ECE Professor

April 26, 2011

Jamal Deen, professor of electrical and computer engineering, and Canada Research Chair in Information Technology, is the recipient of the 2011 Electronics and Photonics Division (EPD) Award from the Electrochemical Society.

The EPD Award is being presented to Prof. Deen for his “pioneering contributions to noise and physics-based modeling of semiconductor devices and innovations in experiments."

Prof. Deen will be presented with the award at the Electronics and Photonics Division Award Reception on Sunday, May 1 at the 219th Meeting of the Electrochemical Society in Montreal.

The EPD Award was established in 1968 to encourage excellence and outstanding technical contributions in the fields of electronics and photonics research and science.

Prof. Deen becomes the first Canadian to win both the Electronics and Photonics Division and the Dielectric Science and Technology Division award (2002) from the Electrochemical Society.

The Electrochemical Society, founded in 1902, is an international organization concerned with a broad range of phenomena relating to electrochemical and solid-state science and technology. It is the largest and oldest such society in the world.

Prof. Deen was elected a Fellow of the Electrochemical Society in 2004. He is also a Fellow of seven other societies including The Royal Society of Canada, the American Physical Society (FAPS), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers; and is an Honorary Member of the World Innovation Foundation. His other awards include the 2002 Callinan Award from the Electrochemical Society; a Humboldt Research Award from the Humboldt Foundation, Germany, in 2006; the Eadie Medal from The Royal Society of Canada in 2008; and the Fessenden Medal from IEEE Canada in 2011.

Prof. Deen’s research record includes approximately 430 peer-reviewed articles, seven best paper awards and six patents used in industry.
