In January 2021, Dr. Rongxing Lu was elevated to IEEE Fellow.  Dr. Lu is an Assistant Professor in the UNB Faculty of Computer Science and he is the only Fellow in the NB Section. The IEEE has conferred this singular honour for contributions to security and privacy in vehicular communications.

The Fellow grade is the highest level of IEEE membership. The IEEE states that it recognizes unusual distinction in the profession and shall be conferred only by invitation of the Board of Directors upon a person of outstanding and extraordinary qualifications and experience in IEEE-designated fields, and who has made important individual contributions to one or more of these fields.

Congratulations to Rongxing on this significant accomplishment.
