Professor Steven I. Marcus (ECE/ISR) has been elected a Fellow of the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
Fellowship honors SIAM members who have made outstanding contributions to the fields served by SIAM. Marcus is in the inaugural class of Fellows; the creation of the program was approved in 2008. The initial Fellows were selected from among those SIAM members for which certain previous recognition places them clearly among those intended to be recognized by the program. This includes members of certain national academies and corporate and laboratory fellowship programs, recipients of certain SIAM or ICIAM prizes, recent editors-in-chief of SIAM journals, and former SIAM presidents.
Marcus is a former chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and a former director of the Institute for Systems Research.
