National Academy of Engineering elects to its ranks four from Stanford

Four Stanford professors have been elected to the National Academy of Engineering (NAE). Robert Gray, Mark Horowitz, Teresa Meng and Sebastian Thrun were among the 64 new members announced on Feb. 9.


The NAE is a private organization that marshals the top engineers in the nation to provide technical insight to the government and address important topics in the field. Election to the NAE is one of the highest honors that an engineer can receive. Each year's class is selected by the current membership. The election honors "important contributions to engineering theory and practice" and those who have demonstrated "unusual accomplishment in the pioneering of new and developing fields of technology." Total membership is 2,127 and 188 foreign associates, including this year's class. 

Gray, the Lucent Technologies Professor of Engineering and vice chair of the Electrical Engineering Department, was cited for "contributions to information theory and data compression." His research has included work on image compression, enhancement and classification as well as statistical signal processing. 

Gray earned bachelor's and master's degrees from MIT in 1966, both in electrical engineering, and a doctorate in the same field from the University of Southern California in 1969. That year he joined Stanford's faculty. From 1984 to 1987, he was director of the Information Systems Laboratory.

White House names Stanford's Robert Gray among nation's top engineering mentors 
Electrical engineering Professor Robert M. Gray was among 10 individuals and six organizations honored with the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring, the White House announced Friday. 

The National Science Foundation (NSF) administers the award, which includes a presidential commemorative certificate and $10,000 grant to provide for continued mentoring work. Honorees have notably increased the participation of minorities, women and disabled students in science, math and engineering. 

I will miss being there!
