Alum Andres Kwasinski earns tenure at RIT
Alumnus Andres Kwasinski (ECE Ph.D. 2004) recently received tenure at the Rochester Institute of Technology and has been promoted to associate professor in the Department of Computer Engineering.
Kwasinski's research interests are in digital signal processing and wireless communications and networking. His work focuses on problems and topics that are at the intersection of these two areas, particularly multimedia wireless communications, user cooperative communications, cognitive radio, multiple access to wireless networks, cross layer designs (especially joint source-channel coding and resource allocation), digital signal processing algorithms and architectures, and speech and video processing for wireless communications.
Kwasinski is an Area Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Magazine and the editor of IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications. At Maryland, he was advised by Nariman Farvardin (ECE/ISR), now the president of the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, N.J. He also was a postdoctoral researcher with Professor K.J. Ray Liu (ECE).
