41 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 voting 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 41 SPS members who were recognized with the grade of Fellow as of 1 January 2021:

Ahmed M. A. Ali, for leadership in high-speed analog-to-digital converter design and calibration.

Achintya Bhowmik, for leadership in perceptual augmentation devices.

Danijela Cabric, for contributions to theory and practice of spectrum sensing and cognitive radio systems.

Jianfei Cai, for contributions to multimedia transmission and content analysis.

Chan-byoung Chae, for contributions to MIMO design and prototypes for emerging communication systems.

Jingdong Chen, for contributions to microphone array processing and speech enhancement in noisy and reverberant environments.

Gene Cheung, for contributions to graph spectral image processing and interactive video streaming.

David Donoho, for contributions to sparse signal acquisition and processing.

Sharon Gannot, for contributions to acoustical modelling and statistical learning in speech enhancement.

Yifan Gong, for leadership in creating cloud speech recognition services in industry.

Wolfgang Heidrich, for contributions to high dynamic range display and computational cameras.
