Natalia Nikolova and Xiaolin Wu, both professors of electrical and computer engineering, have been elected Fellows of the IEEE, one of the most prestigious honours given by the organization.

“This is a great recognition of the career achievements for these incredible people,” said David Capson, chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.  “I am absolutely thrilled to announce their election as Fellows.”

Prof. Nikolova was elected on the basis of her contributions to computer-aided analysis of microwave systems.

Prof. Wu was elected for his contributions to the image coding, communication and processing.

The appointments are effective January 1, 2011.

The IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred upon a person with an extraordinary record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. The total number selected in any one year does not exceed one-tenth of one percent of the total voting Institute membership.
