The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is the world's largest association of technical professionals. The IEEE produces over 30% of the world's literature in the electrical and electronics engineering and computer science fields. IEEE also publishes and maintains many standards; in 2017 IEEE had over 1,100 active standards, with over 600 standards under development. Exponent professionals serve on many IEEE chapters and societies, helping to craft standards and build local community. Senior Member is the highest grade for which IEEE members can apply. IEEE Senior Members are all engineers, scientists, educators, technical executives, or originators in IEEE-designated fields. IEEE Senior Members also have experience reflecting professional maturity, have been in professional practice for at least ten years (with some credit for certain degrees), and show significant performance over a period of at least five of their years in professional practice.
In the spring of 2020, Cathy Chen, Ph.D., P.E., managing engineer at Exponent, was elevated to the rank of IEEE Senior Members at the IEEE Senior Member Panel Meeting. In the fall of 2019, Gavin Scott, Ph.D., senior scientist at Exponent, was also elevated to the rank of IEEE Senior Member. With this elevation, Dr. Scott and Dr. Chen join a prestigious group of IEEE Senior Members who have been recognized for their performance and contributions. They join, among others at Exponent, Patrick Murphy, Ph.D., P.E., Alex Kattamis, Ph.D., P.E., Shukri Souri, Ph.D., Mathew Pooley, Ph.D., and Brian D'Andrade, Ph.D., P.E., as Senior Members of the IEEE.
Congratulations to Dr. Scott and Dr. Chen!
