ECE/Khoury Professors Kevin Fu and Yun Raymond Fu were elected as American Association for the Advancement of Science 2022 Fellows in the Information, Computing & Communication section.

The AAAS is the world’s largest “general scientific society” and publisher of perhaps the most widely recognized prestigious academic journal, Science Magazine.
Kevin Fu is a professor of electrical and computer engineering. His research into securing biomedical devices from cyberattacks is increasingly important in a world where millions such devices are in daily use.
“I’m looking forward to creating interdisciplinary career opportunities for students at Northeastern to improve health care and medical device cybersecurity,” he said.
Also in the department of electrical and computer engineering, distinguished professor Yun Raymond Fu was recognized for “20 years of research and innovations.”
Founding director of the Synergetic Media Learning Lab (the “SMILE” lab), Yun Raymond Fu’s work in artificial intelligence and machine learning, as well as computer vision and pattern recognition, has distinguished him in his field.
The honor of being named a fellow will provide “extra motivation,” for future and ongoing projects, he said.
“I am grateful to all my students who were along with me on all these efforts,” Yun Raymond Fu said.
