I am Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, San Diego. As of September 2013, I am the Associate Dean for Students of the Jacobs School of Engineering. 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. 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.
