Cheriton School of Computer Science Professor Srinivasan Keshav has been named by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers as an IEEE Fellow for his contributions to fair queueing techniques and flow-control algorithms in computer networks.
IEEE Fellowships are conferred by the IEEE Board of Directors upon a person with an outstanding record of accomplishments. The total number of Fellows selected in any single year does not exceed one-tenth of one percent of the total voting membership. IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as a prestigious honour and an important career achievement.
“Professor Keshav is an accomplished computer scientist, and one of the founding members of the Information Systems and Science for Energy research group. He applies his expertise in information systems and science to increase the efficiency and reduce the carbon footprint of energy systems,” said Dan Brown, Director of the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science. “His research on blockchains for transactive energy is now helping to democratize green power. Congratulations on this much-deserved recognition!”
Professor Keshav is the fourth faculty member at the Cheriton School of Computer Science to receive this prestigious recognition from IEEE, following Professors Raouf Boutaba, Ming Li and M. Tamer Özsu.
“It is my great pleasure to inform you that the IEEE Board of Directors, at its November 2018 meeting, has elevated you to IEEE Fellow, effective 1 January 2019,” wrote James A. Jeffries, IEEE President and CEO in his letter to Professor Keshav. “You bring honour to yourself and to IEEE by your achievements. Congratulations!”
