Dr. Reza Moheimani, professor of systems engineering and the James Von Ehr Distinguished Chair in Science and Technology, has received top honors for outstanding achievements in his field. He was recently elected a fellow of The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME).

Moheimani’s research, which has received support from the U.S. Department of Energy and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, focuses on developing technology for atomically precise manufacturing, the process of building quantum devices atom by atom.

In 2019 he launched the Center for Atomically Precise Fabrication of Solid-State Quantum Devices to use the technology to build the devices.

“I am truly honored and humbled that I have been elected as an ASME fellow. Being recognized by one’s peers for past research contributions is a real honor,” Moheimani said. “I am particularly grateful to my collaborators, colleagues and friends in the Dynamic Systems and Control Division of ASME, and I look forward to continuing my association with this outstanding group of researchers in the future.”

The ASME recognizes members with at least 10 years of active practice for outstanding achievements.

Moheimani, who joined UT Dallas in 2015, is also a fellow of the IEEE, the International Federation of Automatic Control and the Institute of Physics in London.

“Attaining fellow in one’s professional society is a great achievement that only a very small percentage of people earn,” said Dr. Stephen Yurkovich, professor and department head of systems engineering and the Louis Beecherl Jr. Distinguished Chair. “Reza is an outstanding researcher, teacher and mentor, and has contributed a tremendous amount to his field. We are extremely fortunate to count him among the faculty of systems engineering at UT Dallas.”
