The IEEE Sensors Council was founded in 1998 for the purpose of creating a focus for the IEEE's widely scattered sensor activities, via a journal and yearly conference.
"The organization represents thousands of engineering professional around the world who work in sensors (academia and industry)", says Dr. Nagle. "It will be my job to lead the organization over the next two years."
Over the next ten years, the Council will branch out into educational products and industry standards. Dr. Nagle will focus on establishing the foundations for this change of direction during his presidency.
Dr. Nagle received his BS and MS in Electrical Engineering from the University of Alabama in 1964 and 1966, respectively. He also received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from Auburn University in 1968 and his MD in Medicine from the University of Miami in 1981. His primary research interests are Bioelectronics Engineering including Bioinstrumentation. Dr. Nagle also served as the Editor in Chief of the IEEE Sensors Journal from 2003 to 2009, and as Vice-President for Conferences from 2009 to 2011.
