47 SPS Members Elevated to Fellow

Each year, the IEEE Board of Directors confers the grade of Fellow on up to one-tenth of one percent of the members. To qualify for consideration, an individual must have been a Member, normally for five years or more, and a Senior Member at the time for nomination to Fellow. The grade of Fellow recognizes unusual distinction in IEEE’s designated fields.

The Signal Processing Society congratulates the following SPS members who were recognized with the grade of Fellow as of 1 January 2017:

Raviraj Adve, Toronto, Canada, for development of signal processing techniques for airborne radar.

Sos Agaian, San Antonio, Texas, for contributions to biologically-inspired visual data processing systems.

Richard Buehrer, Blacksburg, Virginia, for contributions to wideband signal processing in communications and geolocation.

Lap-pui Chau, Singapore, Singapore, for contributions to fast computation algorithms for visual signal processing.

Douglas Cochran, Tempe, Arizona, for contributions to multi-channel coherence in radar, sonar, and spectrum sensing.

Huaiyu Dai, Raleigh, North Carolina, for contributions to MIMO communications and wireless security.

Ricardo De Queiroz, Brasilia, Brazil, for contributions to image and video signal enhancement and compression.

Jose Dias, Lisboa, Portugal, for contributions to imaging inverse problems in remote sensing.

Pier Luigi Dragotti, London, United Kingdom, for contributions to sparse signal representation and sampling theory.

Pablo Estevez, Santiago, Chile, for contributions to feature selection and visualization of large data sets.

James Fowler, Mississippi State, Mississippi, for contributions to lossy source coding and dimensionality reduction of multidimensional data.
