Zhu Han Recognized for Outstanding Scientific Contributions to Computing

 

Zhu Han, John and Rebecca Moores Professor of electrical and computing engineering at the University of Houston, was named a 2019 distinguished member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

Renowned for his expertise in the field of computer science, Han was recognized by ACM for his outstanding scientific contributions to computing.

“Each year it is our honor to select a new class of Distinguished Members,” said ACM President Cherri M. Pancake in a press release. “Our overarching goal is to build a community wherein computing professionals can grow professionally and, in turn, contribute to the field and the broader society.

Han joined the UH Cullen College of Engineering in 2008 and has gone on to earn a long list of accolades. He was named a Fellow of the Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in 2014 for his contributions to resource allocation and security in wireless communication; named IEEE Distinguished Lecturer in 2015; and received a National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2009.

His research focus includes wireless resource allocation and management, wireless networking and communications, wireless multimedia, security and game theory.

All 62 of the 2019 ACM inductees are longstanding members of the organization and were selected by their peers for their significant accomplishments in the field of computing, computer science or information technology that have contributed to technologies that support how people live, work and play.

ACM is the world’s largest educational and scientific computing society. It brings together computing educators, researchers and industry professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources and challenges in the field.
