University of Aberdeen academic is Fellow of the IEEE

An engineering professor at the University of Aberdeen has become a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).

The IEEE is the world's largest technical professional organisation for the advancement of technology, and Professor John Watson from the University of Aberdeen received the accolade in recognition of his work contributing to the development of submersible holography. 

Speaking about his recent achievement, Professor Watson says, “I am delighted and honoured to be elected to the Fellowship of the IEEE and welcome the recognition and value of my work in holography and the development of holocameras. Although such accolades are made to individuals, we should recognise that such awards are only achievable through the hard work and dedication of many research students and colleagues thorough the years. Without them, and the support of my wife and family, this achievement would not have been possible.”

The submersible holography – referred to as ‘holocameras’ have been developed to record high-resolution 3D images of marine particles and organisms. These are used to monitor the abundance and behaviour of plankton, thereby providing invaluable insight into the health of the marine environment and global warming.
