He has published several papers in these areas and holds a U.S. Patent in architecture of reconfigurable systems. He has supervised and graduated more than 30 Masters and PhD students. His students have gone on to pursue successful careers in industry. His research has been funded by many provincial and federal government organizations as well as by many companies. He has been an active IEEE volunteer for over a decade and has served in leadership positions at the section and region levels..
I have been an active IEEE volunteer for over a decade and served in leadership positions at the Section and Region levels. I was the IEEE Canada Central Area Chair from January 2019 to December 2020. In this role I was in constant communication with the Central Area Section chairs to ensure timely reporting and that the Sections remain vibrant and active in terms of providing service to their members by organizing relevant events and activities. I attended all R7 Executive Committee meetings regularly to provide updates.
I was appointed as the Central Area member of R7 Audit Committee for 2021. This experience will be very useful if I am elected R7 Director-Elect.
I was the Chair of Windsor Section for 2017 and 2018. During that period, the Section experienced rapid membership growth. The Windsor Section won the "Exemplary Small Section Award" for 2017. Due to rapid member growth it transitioned to a medium Section (more than 500 members) and won the "Exemplary Medium Section Award" for 2018. I served as a Counselor for the University of Windsor IEEE Student Branch from 2013 to 2016. The Student Branch won "Contribution and Leadership Award from South Eastern Michigan (SEM) Section (R4)", in Spring 2014. At that time, Windsor Section was part of IEEE Region 4. I served as the Publications Chair for CCECE 2017 conference held in Windsor.
I also served as Conference Chair for IEEE International Conference on Electro/Information Technology (EIT 2009, R4 annual flagship conference), held in Windsor, June 7 to 9, 2009. The EIT2009 conference was a great success and generated a large amount of financial surplus.
I have served as a reviewer for many reputed IEEE conferences and journals. I am a member of IEEE Circuits and Systems Society and Vehicular Technology Society.
I have been an active IEEE volunteer for over a decade, holding many executive positions at the Section and Region levels. I have been a member of the IEEE Canada Board for the past four years and a member of the Executive Committee for past two years.
IEEE Engineering Awards & Recognition
IEEE Activities & Contributions examples:
IEEE is a global leader in science, technology, and innovation, and has enormous capacity to achieve wide social impact, technical breadth and contributions to Global Standards, Public Policy, Sustainable Development, Continuing Education and Certification, and Ethics in Technology.
IEEE is a home for professionals, students, and researchers providing leadership, foresight, influence, and direction in best practices, education, and leading-edge research; therefore must continue to earn the professionals’ trust and provide extensive opportunities for professional networking, career development, and life-long learning.
As an experienced Industry leader and long term volunteer, I would provide consultative, valuable guidance for the Region’s sections, Societies, and Chapters towards effective strategic planning and financial accountability and influence discussions related to Public Policy, Sustainable Development, Continuing Education, Ethics in Technology Standards. I believe I have the insights, dedication, and experience to help IEEE prosper, overcome our impending challenges, extend relations with other professional associations, inspire future generations of engineers and scientists through IEEE committees. I am deeply committed to equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) and (WIE) at all IEEE levels.
