(Jan. 23, 2013) -- Ruyan Guo, the UTSA Robert E. Clarke Professor of Electrical Engineering, was named a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for her contributions "to the understanding of polarization phenomena in ferroelectric solid-solution systems." Her work advances the design and tailoring of electronic ceramics, composites and crystals used in applications such as night vision, ultrasonic imaging, energy conversion and structure-health monitoring.

Guo is among 297 of the IEEE's 400,000 members to be elevated to IEEE Fellow for 2013, a recognition awarded to only one-tenth of one percent of the total voting membership. IEEE Fellow is the highest grade of membership and is recognized by the technical community as a prestigious honor and an important career achievement.

The recognition, Guo says, "acknowledges accomplishments in interdisciplinary research and brings to me immense pride for being an educator and a researcher in electrical engineering and materials research."

Her research draws strength from an interdisciplinary approach integrating materials science and electrical engineering in design, synthesis, characterizations and device development. This research focuses on structure-composition-property relationships in ferroelectric, piezoelectric, pyroelectric and nonlinear dielectric and optical materials. She has been awarded multiple grants by federal, state and industry entities in support of her research.

"I am extremely proud of Dr. Guo," said C. Mauli Agrawal, dean of the UTSA College of Engineering. "She is a role model for all engineers but especially for our female engineering students."

Guo is the author-co-author of some 350 technical publications and editor-co-editor of 19 transaction books and professional proceeding volumes. She has been an organizer of various domestic and international technical symposia and conferences.

Some of Guo's accolades include serving as the elected chair of the electronics division of the American Ceramic Society from 2002 to 2003 and an elected member of the administrative committee of IEEE-UFFC from 2006 to 2008. Additionally, she directed the NSF Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) Site Program at Penn State's Department of Electrical Engineering from 2003 to 2007. Guo was recognized as a fellow of the American Ceramics Society (ACerS) in 2003 and a fellow of the International Society of Optics and Photonics (SPIE) in 2009.

At UTSA, she served as interim chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering from 2010 to 2012, faculty adviser to the Society of Women Engineers, and currently directs the new interdisciplinary Master of Science in Materials Engineering interdisciplinary program.

Guo acknowledges her current and past students for being the ones who :did the trench work." She also thanks Mr. and Mrs. Jeff Clarke for the Robert E. Clarke Jr. endowed professorship they generously established that provided freedom for her interdisciplinary research activities.

Guo earned bachelor's and master's degrees in electrical engineering from Xi'an Jiaotong University of China and a doctoral degree in solid-state science from Penn State. Before joining the electrical engineering faculty at UTSA in 2007, Guo was professor of electrical engineering and a member of the research faculty of the Materials Research Institute at Penn State from 1991 to 1999 and a faculty member of the electrical engineering department at Xi'an Jiaotong University from 1984 to 1985.
