I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Computer Engineering at the Rochester Institute of Technology. I hold a Ph.D. (2004) and M.Sc. (2000) degrees, both in Electrical and Computer Engineering, from the University of Maryland. My advisor troughout graduate school was Nariman Farvardin. At the University of Maryland, I was also a postdoctoral researcher in the Signals and Information Group under the supervision of Dr. K. J. Ray Liu. I earned my undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering at the Instituto Tecnologico de Buenos Aires" (ITBA) in December 1992. I am also a Senior Member of the IEEE.

   Other work experiences include working for Texas Instruments Inc. in the area of Wireless Infrastructure (WiMAX and LTE standards) and, back in my native Argentina, I worked for Lucent Technologies and AT&T as a Senior Instructor in telecommunications equipments (fiber optics and PBXs). My first work experience was as a developer of software for the NEC NEAX 61XS public rural area digital telephone switch.

   As a researcher, Iím interested in the areas of Digital Signal Processing and Communications/Networking. As such, I have worked in many problems and topics that are at the intersection of these two areas, such as multimedia wireless communications, cross layer designs (especially joint source-channel coding and resource allocation), multiple access to wireless networks, user cooperative communications, cognitive radio, and speech and video processing for wireless communications. You can find a list of my publications (unfortunately too frequently out of date) in my Research page. Also, I have channelized my interest for DSP research and teaching into the creation of The Digital Signal Processing Blog

   I am a strong supporter of my technical community through voluntarism. I am serving, or have served, in the following:

  • Area Editor: IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, Columns and Forums.

  • Editor: IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications.

  • Associate Editor: IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, "InTheSpotlight", "SP History", "Exploratory DSP" columns.

  • Chair (2010-2012) - IEEE Multimedia Communications Technical Committee, Interest Group on Distributed and Sensor Networks for Mobile Media Computing and Applications.

  • Guest Editor: IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing, special issue on Cooperative Communication and Signal Processing in Cognitive Radio Systems (January 2011).

  • 2010 IEEE GLOBECOM: Workshops Co-Chair (Distinguished Service Award) and Publicity Co-Chair.

  • 2011 IEEE ICCCN: Tutorials Co-Chair.

  • 2012 IEEE ICCCN: Publicity Co-Chair.

  • 2012 ICNC: Invited Papers Co-Chair.

  • 2013 IEEE ICME: Short Papers Co-Chair.

  • Finally, looking a lot farther back in time, my academic genealogy tree.
