Dr. Vineetha Menon is the 2022 IEEE Huntsville Young Professional of the Year.
Dr. Vineetha Menon, assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH), a part of the University of Alabama System, has been named by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Huntsville as the 2022 IEEE Huntsville Young Professional of the Year.
“I was ecstatic as well as deeply humbled by this technical recognition from the IEEE Huntsville section and Huntsville community at large,” says Dr. Menon. “This is a huge recognition by the IEEE Huntsville section and Huntsville tech community. It showcases the national technology and STEM initiatives and accomplishments by the Huntsville tech community.”
According to IEEE Huntsville, candidates for the award must have demonstrated excellence in technical professional work or activity that is concerned with broad and beneficial technical, scientific, social or economic consequences. This excellence must be exemplified in their workplace, professional organization in which they are a participant member, and/or volunteer efforts in the community. They must have exhibited an extraordinary dedication, creativity or leadership in work or activity that resulted in excellent contributions to the technical and economic development of the City of Huntsville and the surrounding areas.
Dr. Menon’s selection makes her a candidate for the Huntsville Associations of Technical Societies (HATS) Bill Roark Young Professional of the Year (YPOY) Award, coming on Oct. 6. The Bill Roark Award recognizes a young professional age 35 or under in the Huntsville area who has provided outstanding service to the technical community, provided leadership in his or her technical area, made an impact as a volunteer to the community and is a member of a HATS technical society.
She was nominated by IEEE Huntsville Section Chair Dr. Leandro Barajas and Sonya Dillard from NASA, who is the winner of the 2022 IEEE Huntsville Professional of the Year Award.
“I’m proud to represent the IEEE Huntsville section as the 2022 IEEE Huntsville YPOY awardee and nominee for The Bill Roark YPOY award this year,” says Dr. Menon. “I look forward to continuing my service to the IEEE Huntsville section and the Huntsville community through technical, leadership, mentoring and STEM initiative contributions.”
Dr. Menon’s research interests include:
“I would like to thank my nominators, mentors, Computer Science department, College of Science Dean Dr. Rainer Steinwandt, collaborators, colleagues, friends and family, who have supported my pursuit of multidisciplinary big data research and path of service to the professional community,” says Dr. Menon. “Cheers and Go Chargers!”
