Biographical Sketch

A. LEE SWINDLEHURST received the B.S. and M.S. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah, in 1985 and 1986, respectively, and the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University in 1991. From 1986-1990, he was employed at ESL, Inc., of Sunnyvale, CA, where he was involved in the design of algorithms and architectures for several radar and sonar signal processing systems. He was on the faculty of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Brigham Young University from 1990-2007, where he was a Full Professor and served as Department Chair from 2003-2006. During 1996-1997, he held a joint appointment as a visiting scholar at both Uppsala University, Uppsala, Sweden, and at the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden. From 2006-07, he was on leave working as Vice President of Research for ArrayComm LLC in San Jose, California. He is currently a Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department at the University of California Irvine (UCI), a former Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies in the Henry Samueli School of Engineering at UCI, and a former Hans Fischer Senior Fellow in the Institute for Advanced Studies at the Technical University of Munich.

Dr. Swindlehurst is a Fellow of the IEEE, past Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Signal Processing, and past member of the Editorial Boards for the EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking, IEEE Signal Processing Magazine, and the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing. He is a recipient of several paper awards: the 2000 IEEE W. R. G. Baker Prize Paper Award, the 2006 and 2010 IEEE Signal Processing Society’s Best Paper Awards, the 2006 IEEE Communications Society Stephen O. Rice Prize in the Field of Communication Theory, and the 2017 IEEE Signal Processing Society Donald G. Fink Overview Paper Award.

Research Interests

Prof. Swindlehurst conducts research in the application of detection and estimation theory to problems in signal processing and wireless communications. He is primarily interested in applications that involve multiple antennas or sensors, such as source localization and tracking (radar, sonar, EEG, GPS), MIMO wireless communications and channel modeling, interference cancellation, multipath mitigation, etc. Examples of current and past projects include:

Current projects

In addition to the projects described above, Prof. Swindlehurst has served as a consultant to several companies on recent efforts including DARPA's MNM (Mobile Networked MIMO) and NSC (Novel Satellite Communications) projects, and a Navy project on low-angle tracking over the ocean surface.
