Dr. Tsouri received his B.Sc degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Ben-Gurion University, Israel in 2000. From 1998 to 2002 he was with Yitran Communications, where he developed power-line communication technologies. From 2002 to 2008 he completed M.Sc. (cum-laude) and Ph.D. studies in Electrical and Computer Engineering at Ben-Gurion University. His research encompassed diversity methods, multiple access communications and OFDM. Major contributions from his Ph.D. research are patented and being commercialized by industry partners. During 2006-2008 he served as Senior R&D Scientist with SigNexT Wireless. In September 2008 he joined Rochester Institute of Technology as an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering, where he established the Communication Research Laboratory (CommLab). His current research interests include body area networks, wireless physical layer security, biomedical signal processing and OFDM.

Dr. Tsouri received the Intel award for excellence in research (2003), Computers and Electrical Engineering Top Associate Editor Award (2010), and was one of three finalists for the RFID Journal Award for Most Innovative Use of RFID (2011). Dr. Tsouri leads multiple research projects in the areas of Wireless Communications, Body Sensor Networks, and Signal Processing for Biomedical Applications. Funding partners include: Welch-Allyn, Xerox Corp., Rochester General Hospital, and nBn Technologies. Dr. Tsouri’s service to the academic community includes serving on the organizing committee of the International Conference on Body Area Networks (BodyNets).
