Electrical and computer engineering professor, Alfred Yu, elevated to IEEE Fellow

Wednesday, November 22, 2023

Electrical and computer engineering professor and Assistant Vice-President, Research and International, Alfred Yu, has been elevated to Fellow of the IEEE for his contributions to ultrasound imaging technology and therapy.

Recognizing the achievements of its members is an important part of the mission of IEEE. Each year, following a rigorous evaluation procedure, the IEEE Fellow Committee recommends a select group of recipients for elevation to IEEE Fellow. Less than 0.1% of voting members are selected annually for this member grade elevation.

Yu is a biomedical engineer with research expertise in ultrasound imaging innovation and therapeutic ultrasound discoveries. He serves as a research scientist at the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for the Aging, as an associate director for the Centre for Bioengineering and Biotechnology, and as a thematic lead for the Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology.

In 2021, Yu was recognized as one of Canada’s most promising researchers by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) when he was selected as one of six countrywide winners of the E.W.R. Steacie Memorial Fellowship. He is also an elected fellow of major professional societies such as the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine and the Engineering Institute of Canada.

Congratulations Alfred!

Professor Alfred Yu
