46 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 46 SPS members who were recognized with the grade of Fellow as of 1 January 2022:

Daniel Abramovitch, for contributions to the development of algorithms for control of mechatronic systems.

Ghassan AlRegib, for contributions to perception-based and context-based visual signal processing.

Shoko Araki, for contributions to blind source separation of noisy and reverberant speech signals.

Michiel Bacchiani, for leadership in commercial automatic speech recognition systems.

Emil Björnson, for contributions to multi-antenna and multi-cell wireless communications.

Laure Blanc-Feraud, for contributions to inverse problems in image processing.

Petros Boufounos, for contributions to compressed sensing.

Chee-Yee Chong, for contributions to information fusion methods for multi-sensor tracking.

Thomas Clancy, for leadership in security and wireless communications.

Bruno Clerckx, for contributions to multi-antenna communications and wireless power transmission.

Andrea Conti, for contributions to wireless communication and localization systems.

Mauro Conti, for contributions to communications network security.

Alexandros G. Dimakis, for contributions to distributed coding and learning.

Trung Q. Duong, for contributions to cooperative communications and physical layer security.

Carol Espy-Wilson, for contributions to speech enhancement and recognition.

Junlan Feng, for leadership in spoken dialog applications, AI platform, and network intelligence.
