Three faculty members in the UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering, among the highest professional honors that can be granted to an American engineer. The academy announced its 2018 class of 83 members and 13 foreign members on Feb. 7.
Ann Karagozian, distinguished professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, was elected for her contributions to combustion and propulsion, education of future aerospace engineers and service to the country.
Stanley Osher, distinguished professor of mathematics, with appointments in computer science, electrical and computer engineering, and chemical and biomolecular engineering, was elected for his contributions to imaging, computer vision, and graphics including level-set methods and efficient compressed sensing.
Ali Sayed, distinguished professor of electrical and computer engineering at UCLA, is currently on leave of absence and is serving as dean of engineering at École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, in Switzerland. He was elected for contributions to the theory and applications of adaptive signal processing.
With the election of these three professors, UCLA now includes 38 affiliated faculty members who are members of the academy.
