Marculescu, Hoe Named IEEE Fellows


November 28, 2012

ECE Professors Radu Marculescu and James C. Hoe have been named IEEE fellows, 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," according to IEEE.

Marculescu, leader of the System Level Design Group, was honored "for contributions to design and optimization of on-chip communication for embedded multicore systems." His research focuses on analysis and optimization of embedded systems, systems-on-chip/networks-on-chip, low-power VLSI systems, and cyber-physical systems.

Hoe, professor and associate department head of ECE, received the fellow distinction "for contributions to high-level hardware design and synthesis." His current research focuses on devising a new FPGA architecture for efficient, high-performance computing. His other research interests include computer architecture and digital signal processing. Hoe co-directs CALCM, the Computer Architecture Lab at Carnegie Mellon, and ITRI@Carnegie Mellon, a collaboration with Taiwan's Industrial Technology Research Institute.

"Professors Hoe and Marculescu are outstanding and accomplished members of our ECE faculty. We take great pride in their contributions to their fields and are very pleased that they have been recognized for their technical leadership through their elevation as IEEE fellows," said ECE Department Head and David Edward Schramm Professor Ed Schlesinger.
