Daryoush Named IEEE Life Fellow


Afshin Daryoush, PhD ’86, professor of electrical and computer engineering, has been named an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Life Fellow.

IEEE Life membership is proof of a strong sustained commitment to the profession and is bestowed on members over the age of 65 whose age and years of membership add up to over 100. IEEE is the largest professional engineering organization in the world.

Daryoush is a longtime member and regular collaborator within IEEE. In 1998, he was among the youngest members of the organization to be elevated as a Fellow of IEEE for contributions to the field of nonlinear microwave photonics with applications to highspeed fiberoptic links. He has conducted research in microwave photonics for telecommunication, satellite communications and biomedical engineering applications, resulting in publication of over 200 technical papers and five book chapters. His work has been published in journals across the three technical societies IEEE – Microwave Theory & Technologies, Photonics), and Antenna & Propagation

“Being part of IEEE and working within its societies has been one of the most delightful experiences of my professional life, and I have encouraged the exceptional engineers I work with to pursue membership.” Daryoush said. “Three of my former PhD students are now fellows of IEEE and one is in the process of reaching this recognition. I have also supported fellowship applications of many international friends and colleagues. It is now even a greater joy for me to stand among ‘Life Fellows’ that I have respected as scholars and enjoyed learning from their technical publications.”
