Professor Luiz DaSilva, Professor of Telecommunications in the School of Engineering at Trinity College Dublin, and principal investigator at “CONNECT”, the world-leading Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) research centre at Trinity, has been elected a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), the world’s largest and most prestigious professional association for the advancement of technology.

He received the honour in recognition of “contributions to cognitive networks and resource management for wireless networks”, and becomes the fourth CONNECT researcher to earn the award, the others being Prof. Tom Brazil (UCD), Prof. Peter Kennedy (Tyndall National Institute), and Prof. Cian Ó Mathúna (Tyndall National Institute).

Professor DaSilva is a principal investigator on several world-class telecommunications research projects funded by the National Science Foundation in the United States, SFI, and the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 and Framework Programme 7. He is a co-applicant of CONNECT, the SFI research centre, and holds a Principal Investigator grant from SFI.

IEEE Fellowship is conferred each year on individuals with an outstanding record of accomplishment in an IEEE field of interest. It is a rare honour with only one-tenth of one percent of the organisation’s total voting membership receiving the accolade annually. The organisation has over 400,000 members in more than 160 countries and is a leading authority on a wide range of areas from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power and consumer electronics. IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership.

Dedicated to the advancement of technology, the IEEE publishes 30 per cent of the world’s literature in the electrical and electronics engineering and computer science fields, and has developed more than 900 active industry standards.  The organisation also sponsors or co-sponsors nearly 400 international technical conferences each year.
