Amir Asif

Professor, ECE
I received my M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.
  • Ph.D. 1996, in Electrical Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University (CMU).
  • M.Sc. 1993, in Electrical Engineering, Carnegie Mellon University (CMU).

My research interests are in statistical signal processing with applications in image and video processing, multimedia communications, bioinformatics, and physical sciences. Current focus is on time reversal and distributed sensor networks. To get an overview of time reversal, click on the audio of my seminar presentation given at the Fields Institute on August 25, 2008 as part of the Workshop on Quantitative Cancer Modelling: Mathematical Models, Imaging and Bioinformatics.

We have excellent opportunities for graduate students interested in statistical signal processing and multimedia communications. If you are interested in these areas, please feel free to contact me.

My current professional commitments include serving as the Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing (2013 – date), Member, Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) (2004 – date), Senior Member IEEE (2003 – date).

Previously, I have served as the Associate Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Letters (2001 – 2004, 2009 - 13) and various other professional categories including organizing two IEEE international conferences.
