Elevated IEEE Fellow, Class 2023

I had the honor to be elevated to the grade of IEEE Fellow (class of 2023).

This prestigious honour has been awarded by the IEEE – one of the largest association of technical professionals in the world – and acknowledges my work on “contribution to modelling, design, and control for aerial and distributed robotic systems”.

The elevation takes effect from 1 January 2023 and has been officially awarded at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics & Automation in May 2023, in London, UK.

The IEEE Fellowship

Each year, based on a rigorous and collective nomination and evaluation process, the IEEE Board of Directors selects a group of members for elevation to IEEE fellow. The total number of prospective IEEE fellows selected in any year cannot exceed the 0.1% of the total voting membership. The IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership of the IEEE and is recognised by the technical and scientific community as a prestigious honour and an important career achievement. To exemplify, only four researchers located in the Netherlands have been elevated IEEE Fellows in 2023.
