Guiling (Grace) Wang, professor and associate dean for research in Ying Wu College of Computing, was recently named an IEEE Fellow, one of the electronic technology industry’s highest honors. She is the first woman to earn the honor among several male recipients at NJIT and only the second current honoree in the computing college. Most recipients are based in Newark College of Engineering, given the IEEE’s focus on electrical engineering. Wang received the award for her work on distributed algorithms. She’s focused on making sure the algorithms retain data quality, fault tolerance and security. She also tweaks the code to help ensure long life of physical sensors, such as in vehicle networks.
