“Sheila Hemami named Associate Director of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering”
Today’s announcement from Tsuhan Chen, the director of the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering states:
"As Associate Director, Sheila will be responsible for all educational programs in ECE, with emphasis on curriculum planning, TA assignment and evaluation, peer teaching reviews, and in many other aspects. While the Associate Director is involved mostly in the undergraduate curriculum, Sheila will also be interacting closely with ... the Director of Graduate Studies... As Associate Director, Sheila will be effectively the 'face' of ECE to all our students, and I know that she will be a very popular one... Sheila brings extensive leadership and organizational experience to the position. She has served as IEEE Image and Multidimensional DSP Technical Committee Chair within the Signal Processing Society (SPS), is currently completing a term as IEEE Transactions on Multimedia Editor-in-Chief, and serves on the IEEE SPS Board of Governors... [Sheila] also leads the CU-ADVANCE effort here at Cornell.
Please join me to welcome Sheila to her new role at ECE!"
