York Wins Prestigious IEEE Award

December 22, 2015

SIUE’s Timothy York, PhD, assistant professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has earned the coveted 2016 IEEE Donald G. Fink Award. The award recognizes York, and a number of exemplary co-authors, for their paper on the topic of bioinspired polarization imaging sensors.

IEEE is the top place for publishing for many of the fields within electrical and computer engineering,” said York. “To be considered the best among that class is truly an honor.”

According to Howard Michel, IEEE president and CEO, “For nearly a century, the IEEE Awards Program has paid tribute to researchers, inventors, innovators and practitioners whose exceptional achievements and outstanding contributions have made a lasting impact on technology, society and the engineering profession.”
