Alleyne achieves unique combo of IEEE Fellow, ASME Fellow
Fellow is one of the most prestigious honors of the IEEE, and is bestowed upon a very limited number of Senior Members who have contributed importantly to the advancement or application of engineering, science and technology bringing significant value to society. The number of IEEE Fellows elevated in a year is no more than one-tenth of one percent of the total IEEE voting membership.
Alleyne had previously been elected Fellow of ASME in 2005. Earning recognition as Fellow in both a predominantly mechanical engineering society and a predominantly electrical engineering society is a unique achievement not shared by many at Illinois.
Alleyne is the Ralph and Catherine Fisher Professor in MechSE. He is also the principal investigator of the $18.5 million NSF Engineering Research Center for Power Optimization of Electro-Thermal Systems (POETS), which is tackling the thermal and electrical challenges surrounding mobile electronics and vehicle design as a single system.
He earned his MS and PhD degrees in mechanical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1992 and 1994, and joined MechSE as an assistant professor in August 1994.
