Four NC State engineering professors have been named 2012 fellows of IEEE, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, for extraordinary accomplishment in a technology field.
The honorees are Drs. Michael Devetsikiotis, Alexandra Duel-Hallen and Veena Misra, professors of electrical and computer engineering, and Dr. George Rouskas, professor of computer science. Duel-Hallen and Misra’s selection means that all of the women who are full professors in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering are IEEE fellows.
Devetsikiotis was recognized for his work on rare-event modeling of communication networks. His research is in the areas of high-speed network modeling, performance evaluation and efficient simulation; and optimization techniques for analysis and design of communication systems.
Duel-Hallen was recognized for contributions to equalization and wireless communications. Her recent projects have focused on fading channel characterization and prediction, adaptive transmission and cross-layer design for ad hoc wireless networks.
Misra was selected for contributions to metal electrodes and high-K dielectrics for CMOS applications. Her research is the areas of advanced CMOS materials and devices, nanoelectronics for memory and logic, organic solar cells, wide bandgap power devices and bioelectronics.
Rouskas was honored for contributions in algorithms, protocols and architectures of optical networks. He also has projects on future Internet architectures, network design and performance evaluation of network protocols and systems.
