Ion Stoica elected to the National Academy of Engineering

EECS Professor Ion Stoica has been elected to the National Academy of Engineering. 

Stoica was honored “for networked systems for large-scale data processing, analytics, and machine learning.” He joins 114 newly elected members, as well as 21 international members to be inducted into the NAE, which is among the highest professional distinctions accorded to an engineer. Stoica is also co-founder and chairman of Databricks, “the world’s first data intelligence platform powered by generative AI.”

EECS distinguished alumni Dawn Tilbury and George Pappas were also among the new inductees.

Tilbury was elected “for advances in manufacturing network control and human-robot interaction and for engineering leadership.” She is the department chair and a professor in the robotics department at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. Pappas was elected “for analysis, synthesis, and control of safety-critical cyber-physical systems.” He is the UPS Foundation Professor and chair of the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania.
