Alumnus Nikos Sidiropoulos elected IEEE Fellow

Alumnus Nikos Sidiropoulos has been elected a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for "contributions to signal processing for communications.”

Sidiropoulos is a professor in the Telecommunications Division of the Technical University of Crete. He earned his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 1992 as a student of Professor John Baras (ECE/ISR). After graduation, he was an ISR postdoctoral researcher and later an assistant Research Scientist at ISR and an adjunct professor for the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. He was an assistant professor at the University of Virginia and an associate professor at the University of Minnesota before moving to the Technical University of Crete. He chaired its Electrical and Computer Engineering department from 2005-2007.

Sidiropoulos also is an IEEE Signal Processing Society Distinguished Lecturer for the period January 1, 2008 to December 31, 2009. His lecture topics are:

• Analyzing Data Boxes: Multi-Way Linear Algebra and Its Applications in Signal Processing and Communications

• Multicast Beamforming and Admission Control for UMTS-LTE and 802.16e

• Back to SP Basics: Multidimensional Harmonic Retrieval

John Baras says, "Nikos Sidiropoulos has established himself as an outstanding researcher and leader in communications, signal processing and networking. We are proud to have him as an alumnus. It has been a real joy for me to collaborate with him over such a long period with continuous excitement and enthusiasm. His clear thinking and elegant algorithms are generously shared with his collaborators and students. Congratulations, Nikos, for a very well deserved recognition!"
