The American Physical Society has named Litton Industries John M. Leonis Distinguished Professor in electrical and computer engineering Richard W. Ziolkowski one of its 2016 fellows.

A physics-trained professor of electrical engineering who researches and develops antennas for medical implants, space communications and more, Ziolkowski sees the fellowship as a return to form.

“Because all my degrees are in physics, the APS fellowship makes me feel I’ve come full circle,” said Ziolkowski, who became a fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers in 1994 and of the Optical Society of America in 2006.
