2021 IEEE TECHNICAL FIELD AWARDS

IEEE Kiyo Tomiyasu Award

IEEE Transportation Technologies Award

Sponsored by the late Dr. Kiyo Tomiyasu, the IEEE Geoscience
and Remote Sensing Society, and the IEEE Microwave Theory and
Techniques Society

Sponsored by the IEEE Industry Applications, Industrial Electronics,
Intelligent Transportation Systems, Microwave Theory and Techniques,
Power Electronics, Power & Energy, and Vehicular Technology Societies

Zhu Han

Philip T. Krein

For contributions to game theory and
distributed management of autonomous
communication networks

For contributions to electric vehicle battery management and hybrid system
optimization

The novel game-theory-related concepts created by Zhu Han have
been critical to enabling efficient and distributive use of wireless
networks with limited resources. Game theory involves modeling
and studying interactions among participants in a network. Zhu has
developed cooperative game theory methods such as the Nash bargaining solution and formation of coalitions where mutual benefits
and collaboration within a network can better utilize network resources for device-to-device communications, cognitive radio, and
4G wireless. His well-known proportional fairness concept has enabled fair resource allocation in networks and is integral to existing
cellular systems. He has also introduced game-theory methodologies
for large-scale distributed optimization for smart-grid applications
important to power industry communications.
An IEEE Fellow, Han is the John and Rebecca Moores Professor with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Houston, Houston, TX, USA.

A luminary in the fields of power electronics and motor drives, Philip
T. Krein's transformative contributions to energy conversion have
broadly impacted electric and hybrid vehicle technologies. Krein began working on improving battery management for electric vehicles
at a time when few believed this was a technical necessity. He developed a battery equalization technique using switched capacitor circuits
that helped reduce the size and cost of battery management systems.
His method extends the lifetime and efficiency of energy storage systems, which are critical to the success of today's electric and hybrid
vehicles. His contributions to vehicle systems optimization include
high-fidelity dynamic models of vehicle systems and their interactions,
linking fuel cells, batteries, ultracapacitors, and motor drives.
An IEEE Fellow, Krein is Director of the Grainger Center for
Electric Machinery and Electromechanics at the University of
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Distinguished Professor at
Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, China.

IEEE Undergraduate Teaching Award
Sponsored by the IEEE Education Society

The IEEE Awards Program

Cristiane A. Pimentel

would like to thank its Award Sponsors

For encouraging women to pursue STEM
careers, and developing industry-based
projects for social justice

Known as not just a teacher but a " knowledge facilitator, " Cristiane
A. Pimentel has leveraged her industry experience with unique
teaching methods to pique student interest in STEM fields, especially among women. Through her production engineering course
at the Federal University of Recôncavo da Bahia, Brazil, and her
involvement with the IEEE Women in Engineering program there,
Pimentel presents opportunities to develop better understanding of
production engineering through playful games and technical visits
to companies in the community. She has developed projects that
involve practical application and experience within industrial environments where students can verify performance during the course
and develop important relationships with other professionals.Topics
impacting the local community have addressed public health, inclusion of women in the labor market, and safety concepts for factories.
An IEEE member, Pimentel is a professor with the Federal
University of Recôncavo da Bahia, Feira de Santana, Brazil.

for their support. It's only through their
generosity that we're able to continue
the long-time practice of recognizing
the work of technologists that has
changed everyone's lives for the better.
