Bio

Dr. Andres Kwasinski received in his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the Buenos Aires Institute of Technology, Buenos Aires, Argentina, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland. Prior to joining RIT he was with Texas Instruments Inc., the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Maryland, and Lucent Technologies. He is Area Co-Editor (Special Initiatives) for the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine and Chief Editor for the IEEE Signal Processing Repository (SigPort). He has been Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, Editor for the IEEE Wireless Communications Letters and Guest Associate Editor for IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing and IEEE Access. He was the 2010 IEEE Globecom Workshops Co-Chair and the Chair for the IEEE Multimedia Technical Committee Interest Group on Distributed and Sensor Networks for Mobile Media Computing and Applications.

Dr. Kwasinski has co-authored the books 'Cooperative Communications and Networking' (Cambridge University Press, 2009) and '3D Visual Communications' (Wiley, 2013) and has published more than 70 technical papers in peer-reviewed journals and international conferences. His research interests are in the area of multimedia wireless communications and networking, cross layer designs, multiple access to wireless networks, user cooperative communications, cognitive radio, digital signal processing and speech, image and video processing for signal compression and communication.
