Mark Little, Vice President of Middleware Engineering at Red Hat, has been named a Fellow of the U.K.’s Royal Academy of Engineering. Fellows are chosen for exceptional contributions in their fields as innovators and role models, and for accomplishments in academia or business. Sir Jim McDonald FREng FRSE, President of the Royal Academy of Engineering, said of the Academy, “Our Fellows represent the best of the best of the engineering world.”

In addition to his work on multiple Red Hat enterprise technology initiatives, Mark is a visiting professor at Newcastle University, where he supervises the research work of PhD and MSc students at Newcastle and helps with research grants. Mark also leads the Red Hat Research Centre, which is adjacent to and partnered with the Newcastle University School of Computing. Among many other programs, the Red Hat Research Centre is a sponsor of the university’s Centre for Doctoral Training in Cloud Computing for Big Data, enabling collaboration among academic researchers, industry, and government agencies. The Research Centre joined with Red Hat Research’s Brno Research Interest Group (RIG) in June 2021 to form the Europe RIG
