Ying Xu, professor of biochemistry in the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, was elected a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
The IEEE publishes approximately one-third of the world’s literature in computer science and the electrical and electronic engineering fields. It also co-sponsors more than 1,900 international conferences annually. As the largest professional organization for the advancement of technology, IEEE has more than 400,000 members worldwide.
Each year, the IEEE Fellow Committee recommends less than 0.1% of members to receive its highest honor and be conferred by the board of directors as an IEEE Fellow.
“I’m very grateful to receive this award. Even though my education was in computer science, my research hasn’t always been in a traditionally recognized computer science field. Having the largest organization of this kind acknowledge my work is a great honor,” said Xu.
