Diana Marculescu named 2015 IEEE Fellow


December 18, 2014

Pittsburgh - Carnegie Mellon University’s Diana Marculescu, Professor and Associate Department Head for Academic Affairs in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has been named an IEEE Fellow. She is being recognized for her contributions to design and optimization of energy aware computing systems. 

"Being recognized as an IEEE Fellow is a wonderful confirmation of the contributions that my research brought to the field of energy aware and sustainable computing. It truly feels great to be 'part of the club,' the most selective group of scientists and engineers in the electrical and electronics engineering domain,” Marculescu said. The IEEE Grade of Fellow is conferred by the IEEE Board of Directors upon a person with an outstanding record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest. Every year, only 0.1% of the IEEE voting membership on record can be recommended for elevation to IEEE Fellow Grade based on their achievements, thereby making it a truly selective group of professionals in the electrical and computing engineering domain.

Professor Marculescu’s research interests include energy-, reliability-, and variability-aware computing and CAD for non-silicon applications. The recipient of many research awards and several recognitions and honors from international professional societies, governmental and industrial funding organizations, Marculescu is an ACM Distinguished Scientist, the recipient of a National Science Foundation Faculty Career Award (2000), and the Carnegie Institute of Technology George Tallman Ladd Research Award (2004). Diana Marculescu was recently selected as an ELATE Fellow (2013-2014), received an Australian Research Council Future Fellowship (2013-2017), and the ACM/IEEE Design Automation Marie Pistilli Award (2014). She was also an IEEE-Circuits and Systems Society Distinguished Lecturer (2004-2005). Marculescu received her Dipl. Ing. degree in Computer Science from "Politehnica" University of Bucharest, Romania in 1991 and her Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from University of Southern California in 1998.

The IEEE is the world’s leading professional association for advancing technology for humanity. Through its 400,000 members in 160 countries, the IEEE is a leading authority on a wide variety of areas ranging from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power and consumer electronics.

Dedicated to the advancement of technology, the IEEE publishes 30 percent of the world’s literature in the electrical and electronics engineering and computer science fields, and has developed more than 900 active industry standards. The association also sponsors or co-sponsors nearly 400 international technical conferences each year. Learn more about IEEE.
