Indian Americans Named Newly Elevated IEEE 2015 Fellows

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers board of directors last month approved nearly 25 Indian Americans, four Indians in India, and five Indians in other countries among the 300 researchers worldwide who qualified for Fellow status, effective Jan. 1, 2015.

Following a rigorous, annual evaluation procedure, the IEEE Fellow Committee recommends a select group of recipients for elevation to IEEE Fellow. Less than one-tenth of one percent of voting members are selected annually for elevation to the highest member grade.

The Indian American researchers, and their projects, include:

Debendra Mallik, of Intel Corporation, for contributions to microprocessor packaging; Krishna Narayanan, of Texas A&M University, for contributions to coding for wireless communications and data storage; and Unnikrishna Pillai, of NYU Polytechnic School of Eng., for contributions to adaptive signal processing and radar systems.
