Three from AT&T Research have been elevated by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) to the status of Fellow, an honor conferred for an outstanding record of accomplishments in an IEEE field of interest.

Ramón Cáceres was recognized for his contributions to mobile computing and communications. He is an experimental researcher in computer systems and networks and his work at AT&T Research revolves around mobile and pervasive computing, human mobility, wireless networking, virtualization, security, and privacy. He is an ACM Distinguished Scientist and holds a PhD from the University of California at Berkeley.

Enrico Bocchieri was recognized for contributions to computational models for speech recognition. An AT&T researcher since 1990, his main research focus is on automatic speech recognition, acoustic modeling, statistical modeling, and neural networks; his work in these areas has contributed to the AT&T WATSONSM speech engine. He has twice won the IEEE Signal Processing Society Best Paper Award (2004 and 1987). He has a PhD and MS from the University of Florida and a  "Laurea cum Laude" from the University of Pavia, Italy, all in Electrical Engineering.

Saeed S. Ghassemzadeh was recognized for contributions to measurement and modeling of broadband wireless channels and their applications to system design. He has been at AT&T Research since 1995 where he conducted research in areas of CDMA access technologies, propagation channel measurement and modeling, satellite communications, wireless local area networks and coding in wireless systems. His current research interests include wireless channel measurement and modeling, remote tele-health monitoring and cognitive radio. He is an editor for IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications and Journal of Communications and Networks. He received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from The City University of New York in 1994.
