University of Washington Department of Electrical Engineering Research Associate Professor Linda Bushnell received the 2017 IEEE Control Systems Society (CSS) Distinguished Member Award.
This top-level award recognizes significant technical contributions and outstanding long-term service to the Control Systems Society.
“Linda has made significant contributions to networked control systems and has served the IEEE Control Systems Society tirelessly for many years,” Edwin Chong, president of IEEE CSS and professor at Colorado State University, said. “She currently serves as a member of the CSS Board of Governors, a CSS Distinguished Lecturer, a member of the CSS Women in Control Standing Committee, a member of the CSS Technical Committee on Control Education, a member of the History Committee and the Liaison to IEEE Women in Engineering. We are greatly appreciative of her contributions to research and service to our community.”
Earlier this year, Dr. Bushnell was named an IEEE Fellow, the highest grade of membership bestowed to a member. Dr. Bushnell has received numerous other accolades during her career. She is a recipient of the US Army Superior Civilian Service Award, NSF ADVANCE Fellowship and IEEE CSS Recognition Award. She has been a member of the IEEE since 1985 and a member of the IEEE CSS since 1990.
Dr. Bushnell will be recognized for this achievement at the IEEE Conference on Decision and Control in Melbourne, Australia in December.
