Zhu Han, a Moores professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the Cullen College of Engineering, has been selected for a three-year term as a Distinguished Speaker by the Association for Computing Machinery.
Han is the first two professors from the University of Houston to receive this honor, together with Dr. Albert Cheng, a computer science professor in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics.
According to the ACM, their speakers come from a wide range of disciplines – academic sources like Stanford University and McGill, but also, vastly different industries, like IBM, Microsoft, Sony Pictures and Raytheon. The organization is affiliated with about 140 speakers currently.
Han's research interests include wireless resource allocation and management, wireless communications and networking, game theory, big data analysis, security and smart grid. In November 2019, he was elected as an AAAS Fellow, and he has also received an NSF CAREER award and the IEEE's 2021 Kiyo Tomiyasu Award for early to mid-career contributions.
Han has been a Distinguished Member of the ACM since 2019. He sees it as an opportunity to more widely disseminate the research he and his team are doing at the Cullen College of Engineering, as well as being positively influenced by other speakers of the ACM.
