Professor Brian L. Evans was elevated to IEEE Fellow, the highest grade of IEEE membership, for contributions to multicarrier communications and image display.
In multicarrier communications, Prof. Evans was recognized for his algorithms to maximize user bit rates in WiMax, cellular and DSL systems. In image display, he was recognized for his algorithms to improve image quality in printers. For both contributions, the algorithms were developed to be amenable for cost-effective implementation in products. Prof. Evans joined the UT Austin faculty in fall 1996.
