I am Professor of Electrical and
Computer Engineering at the
University of California, San Diego.
I joined UCSD in July of 1995. Prior to that, I was a Visiting Assistant
Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University
of Minnesota, and a postdoctoral fellow and lecturer in Electrical Engineering
at Stanford University. I received my Ph.D. from Stanford University in 1993
and my B.S.E.E. from the California Institute of Technology in 1987.
At UCSD, I was the Director of the
Center for Wireless Communications
from 2006 to 2008, and the Associate Dean for Students of the
Jacobs School of Engineering
from 2013 to 2016. I am also affiliated with the
California Institute for Telecommunications
and Information Technology.
I do research on image and video compression, wireless communications, and image and video processing.
This is my first children's book. It's for ages 9 to 11. It teaches a little bit about error correction
coding and other concepts in wireless communications through a fictional story.
Kids are passing secret messages in school, which gets them in trouble
at school when someone changes one bit in the message. But when there's a hostage crisis in a bank, the error
correction code ends up playing an unexpected role.
Some instructional materials (questions & answers for each chapter) can be found here.
