Mona Jarrahi, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering, has received the 2023 Advanced Career Technical Achievement Award from the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). 

The IEEE Sensors Council’s award honors individuals who have made major contributions in the fields of sensors, sensor systems or networks. Jarrahi, who was selected for her achievements in developing sensing technologies, received the award in October at the IEEE Sensors 2023 conference held in Vienna, Austria.

Jarrahi, who holds the Northrop Grumman Chair in Electrical Engineering, directs the Terahertz Electronics Laboratory, which focuses on expanding the capabilities and applications of terahertz sensing and imaging systems. The lab also conducts research on millimeter-wave electronics and optoelectronics, microwave photonics, and imaging and spectroscopy systems. 

Among the many honors Jarrahi has received are the 2022 Harold E. Edgerton Award in High-Speed Optics from international society for optics and photonics SPIE, the Institution of Engineering Technology’s A F Harvey Engineering Research Prize in 2021 and the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s Inventor Fellowship in 2016. She is also a fellow of the American Physical Society, the Institute of Physics and IEEE.
