Manoj R. Shah

Santosh K. Kurinec

For advancements in electromagnetic design and
analysis of electrical machines

For distinguished contributions integrating research
into undergraduate engineering education to develop
microelectronic engineers well prepared for future challenges

Manoj R. Shah's innovative methods for analyzing and
designing electric machines have provided fault-tolerant
equipment that can operate at higher efficiency more reliably.
He developed an electromagnetic analysis method for General
Electric generators using electric vector and magnetic scalar
potentials. His method provided a greater level of accuracy in
calculating the intensity of magnetic fields to address the
geometric complications of winding and structural configurations and nonlinear aspects of magnetic materials in the end
region of generators. His method has been incorporated in
many General Electric air- and hydrogen-cooled generators
produced over the last 15 years. He also developed an
advanced wound-field motor for the U.S. Navy, providing
greater power output for ship propulsion in a smaller package.
An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Shah is a senior engineer with General
Electric Co.'s Global Research Center, Niskayuna, N.Y.

Santosh K. Kurinec's graduate-level approach to undergraduate
education has inspired students to become high-level microelectronics engineers. She has directed an undergraduate program in
microelectronics at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)
where the education and welfare of students, not just research
results, are central to the mission. She has provided undergraduate students with a learning environment normally tailored to
graduate students, establishing unique courses and laboratories
incorporating research and design projects with real-world
relevancy. Her efforts have resulted in the modernization of
teaching laboratories and establishment of cutting-edge program
tracks at RIT. Dr. Kurinec joined the RIT Microelectronic Engineering
Department in 1988. She emphasized providing all undergraduate
students with research experience through class projects. She has
advised over 150 projects over the past 15 years. An IEEE Fellow,
Dr. Kurinec is a professor of electrical and microelectronic engineering with the Rochester Institute of Technology, New York.

Mung Chiang

Kannan M. Krishnan

For demonstrating the practicability of a new
theoretical foundation for the analysis and design of
communication networks

For his paper "Biomedical Nanomagnetics: A Spin
Through Possibilities in Imaging, Diagnostics and
Therapy," IEEE Transactions on Magnetics, Volume 46,
Issue 7, July 2010, pp. 2523-2558

In a very short time, Mung Chiang has made a major impact with
his theoretical foundation for optimizing communications
networks by addressing real-world problems concerning wireless
systems and the Internet. His breakthrough mathematical theory
is based on a cross-layering perspective and reverse-engineering
approach using decomposition theory. Where traditional
methods started with individual layers and the hope that they
would interact well later on, his approach provides a top-down
process to design layer protocol stacks from successful first principles for more predictable outcomes. This cross-layer approach
enables dynamic feedback between layer boundaries to coordinate the demands on different layers based on the needs of
network users, thus optimizing network performance. To bridge
the gap between theory and practice in networking, he founded
the EDGE Laboratory at Princeton University, N.J., in 2009.
An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Chiang is a professor with the Electrical
Engineering Department at Princeton University.

Kannan M. Krishnan's paper provides a much-needed comprehensive treatment of biomagnetics detailing the advances and
challenges in using magnetic nanoparticles for medical applications. In it, he addresses targeted drug delivery for cancer
treatment, novel contrast agents for magnetic resonance
imaging, cancer therapy using magnetic hyperthermia, in vitro
diagnostics based on magnetic nanoparticles, and the magnetic
particle imaging technique. Dr. Krishnan presents the relevant
physics of nanoscale magnetic particles, reviews their synthesis
and characterization, and discusses the practical necessities for
modifying particle surface chemistry to address in vivo applications while also conforming to U.S. Food and Drug Administration
regulations. An IEEE Senior Member, Dr. Krishnan is a professor
with the Department of Materials Science and Physics at the
University of Washington, Seattle.
