Dartmouth Professor of Computer Science David Kotz has been awarded the distinction of Fellow by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). Kotz is among the 302 new IEEE Fellows worldwide named for 2009.

Kotz was recognized for his “contributions to parallel and distributed systems and wireless networks.” His work focuses on analyzing Wi-Fi computer networks, studying how people use them, how secure they are, and how to minimize vulnerabilities.

“I am honored to be recognized as an IEEE Fellow, and grateful to the many mentors and students who have helped me succeed,” said Kotz.

The IEEE grade of Fellow is conferred by the Board of Directors upon a person with an extraordinary record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest.

The IEEE is the 375,000-member association for the students and professionals in the technology field around the world. Originally focused on electrical engineering, the IEEE now serves numerous specialties, including aerospace systems, computers, telecommunications, biomedical engineering, and consumer electronics.
