EECS Professor Sayeef Salahuddin and alumnus Kevin Kornegay elected lifetime fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science

Sayeef Salahuddin, TSMC Distinguished professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, has been elected as a lifetime fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). He was recognized “for distinguished contributions to electronic device science and engineering, in particular for inventing negative capacitance devices with potential for dramatic increases in energy efficiency in computing.”

Salahuddin is among six UC Berkeley professors elected to the 2023 Fellows of the AAAS. Fellows are recognized for “achievements across disciplines, from research, teaching, and technology, to administration in academia, industry and government, to excellence in communicating and interpreting science to the public.” An IEEE and APS Fellow, Salahuddin’s research explores novel device physics for low-power electronic and spintronic devices.

EE alumnus Kevin Kornegay (M.S. ’90, Ph.D. ’92; Advisor: Bob Brodersen) was also elected as a Fellow of the AAAS. He is currently the Eugene DeLoatch Endowed Professor in IoT, in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Morgan State University.
