ECE ILLINOIS Professors Deming Chen and Romit Roy Choudhury have been elevated to IEEE Fellows by the IEEE Fellow Committee for their contributions to FPGA high-level synthesis and to wireless network protocols and indoor localization, respectively. Each year, the IEEE Fellow Committee recommends a select group of recipients for elevation to IEEE Fellow following a rigorous evaluation procedure. Less than 0.1% of voting members are annually selected for this member elevation.

Chen has primarily focused his research on circuits and computer-aided design of integrated circuits while Choudhury has focused on networking and distributed computing.
