VILLANOVA, Pa. – Villanova University’s Moeness Amin, PhD, Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Director of Villanova University’s Center for Advanced Communications (CAC), has been recognized internationally for his expertise and influence in the field of signal processing. In December 2014, Dr. Amin won the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Signal Processing Society Technical Achievement Award, which recognized his fundamental contributions to signal processing algorithms for communications, satellite navigations, and radar imaging. Most recently, Dr. Amin was invited to join the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP) as one of its 2015 Fellows for his contributions to signal processing for radar and satellite navigation.
“Elevation to EURASIP Fellow is a testament to the international recognition of the CAC’s contributions to advances in radar and GPS technologies, whereas the Signal Processing Society Technical Achievement Award is the most esteemed professional award that I have received,” said Dr. Amin.
A particularly prestigious honor, EURASIP elevates only a select group of up to four signal processing researchers to receive its highest Fellow distinction. Typically bestowed on faculty and researchers at academic and research institutions in Europe, Dr. Amin is the only non-European Fellow to be elected in 2015. Dr. Amin is also a Fellow of the IEEE, the International Society of Optical Engineering (SPIE) and the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET).
Dr. Amin credited his colleagues ’role in his success, saying, “CAC Research Professors Drs. Ahmad and Zhang have made outstanding contributions in the field of radar. I also am grateful for my faculty collaborators. Professors Robert Caverly, PhD; Ahmad Hoorfar, PhD, Director, Antenna Research Laboratory; and Bijan Mobasseri, PhD have worked with me on through wall radar imaging for many years and made seminal contributions to this area.”
