MTL faculty member Dimitri Antoniadis is one of two MIT professors among the 76 new members of the National Academy of Engineering.
Election to the NAE is among the highest professional distinctions an engineer can receive. Academy membership honors those who have made "outstanding contributions to engineering research, practice or education" and who have demonstrated accomplishment in the "pioneering of new and developing fields of technology, making major advancements in traditional fields of engineering, or developing/implementing innovative approaches to engineering education."
Antoniadis, the Ray and Maria Stata Professor of Electrical Engineering, was cited for "contributions on microelectronics in field-effect devices and for silicon process modeling."
Also newly elected from MIT is M. Frans Kaashoek, professor of computer science and electrical engineering, for "contributions to computer systems, distributed systems, and content-distribution networks."
A full listing of all new members can be found in the related press release at the National Academy of Engineering's website: http://www.nationalacademies.org/
