Recognizing the achievements of its members is an important part of the mission of the IEEE. Each year, following a rigorous evaluation procedure, the IEEE Fellow Committee recommends a select group of recipients for one of the Association’s most prestigious honors, elevation to IEEE Fellow.

At its November 2011 meeting, the IEEE Board of Directors elevated Professor Yogendra Joshi to IEEE Fellow, effective January 1, 2012, with the following citation: for contributions to microfabricated cooling devices.

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. 

Congratulations to Dr. Joshi on this most important achievement.
