Presidential Appointment

Panos Antsaklis, the H.C. and E.A. Brosey Professor of Electrical Engineering, was appointed to the Technical Advisory Group on Networking and Information Technology, a part of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology.

The council addresses matters involving science and technology policy, research priorities, and mathematics and science education. Members are appointed by the President and are drawn from industry, education, research institutions, and other nongovernmental organizations.

A Notre Dame faculty member since 1980, Antsaklis has also been honored by his alma mater, Brown University in Providence, R.I., where he was named the 2006 recipient of the Brown Engineering Alumni Medal. Established in 1997 as a part of the sesquicentennial celebration of engineering at Brown, the award is presented to alumni who have demonstrated exceptional accomplishments throughout their careers.

Antsaklis, who earned both his master’s and doctoral degrees from Brown, also served as a faculty member there, as well as at Rice University and London’s Imperial College of Science, Technology, and Medicine, prior to joining the University.
