College of Fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE) inductee
Professor of Electrical Engineering John Pauly will be inducted into the College of Fellows of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering (AIMBE), "for seminal contributions in Magnetic Resonance Imaging that enabled new techniques with dramatically improved imaging speed, resolution, and contrast for biomedical applications." The ceremony will be held at the AIMBE annual meeting at the National Academy of Science on March 24, 2014.
The College of Fellows is comprised of the top two percent of medical and biological engineers in the country. The most accomplished and distinguished engineering and medical school chairs, research directors, professors, innovators, and successful entrepreneurs, comprise the College of Fellows.
AIMBE Fellows are regularly recognized for their contributions in teaching, research, and innovation. AIMBE Fellows have been awarded the Presidential Medal of Science and the Presidential Medal of Technology and Innovation and many also are members of the National Academy of Engineering, Institute of Medicine, and the National Academy of Sciences.
"In addition to his stellar research contributions, John is one of the best citizens of the Stanford EE department, chairing faculty searches and serving on the undergraduate curriculum committee with great care and dedication," says EE Department Chair Abbas El Gamal.
Elected to the National Academy of Engineering
Stephen Boyd, Samsung Professor in the School of Engineering, has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering "for contributions to engineering design and analysis via convex optimization."
Election to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Academy membership honors those who have made outstanding contributions to "engineering research, practice, or education, including, where appropriate, significant contributions to the engineering literature," and to 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."
The NAE elected 67 new members in 2014, bringing the total U.S. membership to 2,250.

Electrical Engineering Professor Emeritus Arogyaswami Paulraj has won the prestigious Marconi Prize of the Marconi Society for "his pioneering contributions to developing the theory and applications of MIMO antennas."
“Paulraj’s contributions to wireless technology, and the resulting benefit to mankind, are indisputable. Every WiFi router and 4G phone today uses MIMO technology pioneered by him,” says Professor Sir David Payne, Chairman of the Marconi Society.
According to the Marconi Society, its aim is to enhance the spirit of Guglielmo Marconi – scientist, engineer, inventor, and entrepreneur – his contributions to communications and information, and his determination that such knowledge be directed to the social, economic and cultural improvement of all humanity. The $100,000 Marconi Prize recognizes achievements of those living individuals from anywhere in the world whose aspirations, careers and accomplishments are characterized by a similar dedication.
