Two @OhioStateECE professors honored by IEEE


Chen and TeixeiraTwo members of the OSU Electrical and Computer Engineering department were recently honored for their industry accomplishments.

On Jan. 1, professors Chi-Chih Chen and Fernando Teixeira, both of the OSU Electroscience Laboratory, were elected IEEE Fellows.

The IEEE is the world's largest professional association dedicated to advancing technological innovation and excellence for the benefit of humanity. The IEEE Board of Directors awards the rank of Fellow to a person with an outstanding record of accomplishment.

Chen is noted for his “contributions to wideband and miniature antennas.”

Teixeira is likewise spotlighted “for contributions to time-domain electromagnetic techniques and applications.”

Chen said less than 0.1 percent of the IEEE voting members reach Fellow status, so it was humbling to be recognized.

"It was a great honor for me to be elected," he said. "I consider this a recognition of the quality of my research work by my colleagues and peers worldwide."

Ever since joining the ESL, Chen said he embraced the responsibility "to relentlessly purse better solutions and push envelopes, as many of my predecessor have done."

The support and encouragement from ECE and ESL staff throughout the years helped drive his passion, he said, "to try to achieve nothing but the best. That's why I can became an IEEE Fellow today."

Teixeira said the IEEE is the largest professional association in the area of electrical engineering, so he was equally honored by the focus on his work.

"I was always fascinated by the physics of waves, which permeate our universe. My research work has focused on areas that blend wave physics with engineering applications relevant to society," he said.

Through its 400,000 members in 160 countries, the IEEE is a leading authority on a wide range of areas ranging from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power and consumer electronics.
