|

Five professors from the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering — Eric Pei-Yu Chiou, Warren Grundfest, Mona Jarrahi, Yuanxun “Ethan” Wang and Chee Wei Wong — have been elected as fellows of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, the world’s largest technical professional organization for technology advancement. The honor is reserved for individuals who have made extraordinary accomplishments in engineering, computing and information technology. The citations for the five new fellows are below:

Eric Pei-Yu Chiou, professor in the departments of mechanical and aerospace engineering, and bioengineering, was honored “for contributions to optofluidics for high throughput single cell manipulation.”

Dr. Warren Grundfest, professor in the departments of bioengineering, and electrical and computer engineering, was honored “for contributions to the development of minimally invasive surgical techniques.” Grundfest also holds a faculty appointment in the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA.

Mona Jarrahi, professor of electrical and computer engineering, was honored “for contributions to terahertz technology and microwave photonics.”

Yuanxun “Ethan” Wang, professor of electrical and computer engineering, was honored “for contributions to time-varying and nonlinear electromagnetic devices and systems.”

Chee Wei Wong, professor of electrical and computer engineering, was honored “for contributions to silicon nanophotonics.”
