SDSI Researcher is Elevated to IEEE Fellow

Professor Antonia Papandreou-Suppappola

Professor Antonia Papandreou-Suppappola, a researcher in ASU’s Security & Defense Systems Initiative (SDSI) and a Professor of Electrical Engineering in ASU’s School of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering, was recently given one of the IEEE’s most prestigious honors when she was made an IEEE Fellow for her “contributions to applications of time-frequency signal processing.”  Each year, following a rigorous evaluation procedure, the IEEE Fellow Committee recommends to the IEEE Board of Directors a highly select group of its members for elevation to Fellow.   IEEE Fellow is a distinction reserved for select IEEE members whose extraordinary accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest are deemed fitting of this prestigious grade elevation.  The total number selected in any one year does not exceed one-tenth of one percent of the total voting Institute membership. At its November 2012 meeting, the Board elevated Professor Papandreou-Suppappola to the grade of IEEE Fellow, effective 1 January 2013.  IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as a prestigious honor and an important career achievement.
