CRD’s Daniel Burke Elevated to IEEE Senior Member
January 24, 2013
Daniel Burke, who joined the Computational Research Division last fall as a project manager for the new Computer Architecture Lab, has been elevated to the grade of Senior Member of the IEEE this year. Senior Member is the highest professional grade of the IEEE for which a member may apply and only about 8 percent of IEEE’s 416,000 members have achieved this level.
At the lab, Burke is exploring low-energy approaches for the Department of Energy's Exascale Computing Initiative. Although he only joined the Lab last October, since 2006 Burke has collaborated with John Shalf and other CRD researchers on a number of projects, including RAMP and GreenFlash, which evolved into the Exascale Computing Initiative.
To be eligible for Senior Member status, IEEE members must be engineers, scientists, educators, technical executives, or originators in IEEE-designated fields with at least 10 years experience; have experience reflecting professional maturity; and show significant performance over a period of at least five of their years in professional practice.
