Thrasyvoulos N. Pappas received the S.B., S.M., and Ph.D. degrees in
electrical engineering and computer science from the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA, in 1979, 1982, and 1987,
respectively. From 1987 until 1999, he was a Member of the Technical
Staff at Bell Laboratories, Murray Hill, NJ. In 1999, he joined the
Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (now EECS) at
Northwestern University as an associate professor. His research
interests are in image and multidimensional signal processing, and in
particular, image and video quality and compression, image and video
analysis, content-based retrieval, video transmission over
packet-lossy networks, perceptual models for image processing,
model-based halftoning, tactile devices, processing, and perception,
and multimodal signal processing.
Dr. Pappas is a Fellow of IEEE and a Fellow of SPIE.
He is Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing (2010-12).
Dr. Pappas has served as an elected member of the Board of Governors
of the Signal Processing Society of IEEE (2004-7), chair of the
IEEE Image and Multidimensional Signal Processing Technical Committee
(2002-3), and associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Image
Processing (1996-2003), the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine
(2006-8), the SPIE/IS&T Journal of Eletronic Imaging (2007-9), and
the Foundations and Trends in Signal Processing Journal (2006-9).
He has also served as technical program co-chair of ICIP-09, ICIP-01,
and the Symposium on Information Processing in Sensor Networks (IPSN-04).
Since 1997 he has been co-chair of the SPIE/IS&T Conference on Human
Vision and Electronic Imaging. He has also served as co-chair of the 2005
SPIE/IS&T Electronic Imaging Symposium.
