Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) officially announced the list of newly elected 2022 fellow on 24th November. Hongsheng Chen, alumni of 1996 mixed class in Chu Kochen Honors College of Zhejiang University, is included for his significant contributions to electromagnetic meta-materials and invisibility cloaking.
IEEE Fellow is the highest-ranking member of IEEE and the highest honor awarded by the organization. Because they are selected by peer experts from the members who have made outstanding contributions every year, it is recognized as an authoritative honor and important professional achievement in the academic and scientific field. The number of elected members is no more than 0.1% of the total number of IEEE members.
Hongsheng Chen, Dean of the College of Information Science and Electronic Engineering, Zhejiang University
Hongsheng Chen is alumni of 1996 mixed class in Chu Kochen Honors College, Zhejiang University and majored in information science and electronic technology. He received the B.S. degree in 2000 from the Department of Information Science and Electronic Engineering in Zhejiang University and Ph.D. degree from International Academy of Electromagnetic Sciences in Zhejiang University. Chen was hired as an Associate Research Researcher in 2007 and a Full Professor in Zhejiang University in 2011. He was a Visiting Scientist (2006-2008), and a Visiting Professor (2013-2014) with the Research Laboratory of Electronics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA. He is also The Yangtze River Distinguished Professor of the Ministry of Education and the winner of the National Outstanding Youth Fund.
