Grosu named to ACM’s Distinguished Members class for 2023

Daniel GrosuThe Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) announced its latest class of ACM Distinguished Members, an accolade that recognizes longstanding members who have made significant contributions to the computing field. Among the honorees is Daniel Grosu, associate professor of computer science in the Wayne State University College of Engineering.

The ACM Distinguished Member program, which began in 2006, acknowledges up to 10% of ACM’s top members, all of whom have at least 15 years of professional experience. Grosu is one of 52 people in this group of inductees.

“I am very honored and humbled to be named an ACM Distinguished Member,” said Grosu, who has been with Wayne State since earning his Ph.D. from the University of Texas at San Antonio in 2003. “I would like to thank my current and former students and colleagues for the opportunity to collaborate on many research projects.”

Grosu is the director of the Parallel and Distributed Computing Lab at Wayne State. His research focuses on cloud and edge computing, parallel and distributed algorithms, approximation algorithms, scheduling and load balancing, and topics at the border between computer science, game theory and economics.

He has published more than 125 peer-reviewed papers on these subjects, and has been named an IEEE Computer Society Distinguished Contributor. He currently serves as a senior associate editor for ACM Computing Surveys, and as an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Parallel and Distributed Systems, and IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing.

Grosu has advised numerous Ph.D. students, who have accrued such accolades as three IEEE Technical Committee on Scalable Computing Outstanding Ph.D. Dissertation Awards; one runner-up INFORMS Doctoral Dissertation Award for Operations Research in Telecommunications and Network Analytics; two Ralph H. Kummler Awards for Distinguished Achievement in Graduate Student Research, which is awarded to the top Ph.D. student in the Wayne State College of Engineering; and three Michael E. Conrad Graduate Research Publication Awards, the highest honor for a Wayne State computer science Ph.D. student.
