Professor Alan Willson is Selected for 2013 Vitold Belevitch Award
Charles P. Reames Professor Alan Willson has been selected to receive the 2013 Vitold Belevitch Award from the IEEE Circuit and Systems (CAS) Society. This award “honors the individual with fundamental contributions in the field of circuits and systems.” The award is only given every two years by the Society. Professor Willson will receive it during an IEEE CAS Society Conference later this year.
Prof. Willson’s research has been in theory and application of digital signal processing, including VLSI implementations, digital filter design and nonlinear circuit theory.
In recent years, Professor Willson has also received the 2012 Darlington Best Paper Award from the IEEE CAS Society and the 2010 Leon K. Kirchmayer Graduate Teaching Award from the IEEE. He was also an IEEE Distinguished Lecturer from 2009 through 2011.
