Leading engineering professor appointed Fellow of IEEE

A leading engineering professor from the University of Aberdeen has been named as a Fellow of the IEEE, The world's largest technical professional organisation for the advancement of technology.

Professor John Watson received the accolade in recognition of his work contributing to the development of submersible holography – so-called ‘holocameras’ - to record high-resolution 3D images of marine particles and organisms.

The method is used by marine scientists to monitor the abundance and behaviour of plankton, providing insights into the health of the marine environment and the impact of global warming.

Commenting on his elevation as a Fellow of the IEEE, Professor Watson said: “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.”
