Outstanding IEEE AwardsZhen Peng and Hamide Seidfaraji have been recognized by the IEEE for their outstanding service and accomplishments.

ECE Asst. Professor Zhen Peng will receive the IEEE Albuquerque Section's Outstanding Young Engineer​ Award on Mon, May 15 at its 2017 Annual Awards Banquet.

Peng receives the award for his contributions to the development of novel computational electromagnetic techniques, including a hybrid statistical/deterministic approach for complex wave-chaotic systems.​

Peng will receive a $500 cash prize and a certificate of recognition. He will also be invited to give a public talk in the fall.

Each year the IEEE Albuquerque Section recognizes the efforts of its membership to improve the organization and bring merit to its profession.

Peng is also the recipient of 2016 UNM ECE Department's Distinguished Researcher Award, 2015 Applied Computational Electromagnetics Society (ACES) Early Career Award, 2014 IEEE Antenna and Propagation Sergei A. Schelkunoff Transactions Prize Paper Award, and a number of Young Scientist Awards and Best Paper Awards from various conferences.

Also receiving recognition at the banquet will be ECE research assistant Hamide Seidfaraji who won the EEE Albuquerque Section's Outstanding Graduate Engineering Student Award for 2017.

Seidfaraji has distinguished herself during her years at ECE with her outstanding academic performance, as well as her interest and dedication to electromagnetics.

She has been invited to attend the 2017 Annual Awards Banquet to receive the prize and a certificate of recognition on Monday 15 2017.

Hamide Seidfaraji is a PhD candidate at University of New Mexico and her advisor is Professor Christodoulou. Her research interests are antenna designing, Solving the Antenna and wave propagation problems, Metamaterial (MTM) design and metamaterial-based high power microwave device such as backward wave oscillators.
