Andreas Spanias is a professor in the School of of Electrical, Computer and Energy  Engineering Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU). His research interests are in the areas of adaptive signal processing, sensor systems, and speech/audio processing. While at ASU, he has developed and taught courses in DSP, adaptive signal processing, and speech coding. He has also developed and taught continuing education short courses and web courses in digital signal processing and speech coding. Andreas Spanias has been the principal investigator on research contracts from Intel Corporation, Sandia National Labs, Motorola Inc., and Active Noise and Vibration Technologies, Inter-Tel Communications, Freescale,  Texas Instruments, DTC, and the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics. In his work with Intel Corporation he contributed to the development of architectures with signal processing capabilities and received an award from Intel for “his leadership and contributions to the development of the Intel 60172 processor architecture” and a corporate award for his support of the Intel research program.    He and his student team developed the computer simulation software Java-DSP (J-DSP – ISBN 0-9724984-0-0) which is being used in the ASU DSP courses.  Its iPhone/iPad version received the 2012 Premier Award. He received the 2003 teaching award from the IEEE Phoenix section for the development of J-DSP.  He is author of two text books: Audio Processing and Coding by Wiley and DSP; An Interactive Approach (2nd Ed.). He also co-authored several lecture series monographs/booklets.  Andreas Spanias served as founding associate director of  the ASU School of Arts,  Media, and Engineering (AME) where he headed a program on sound localization for smart stages using microphone arrays. He is the director of the ASU SenSIP Consortium which has several  industry members. SenSIP is now  a site of the NSF Net-Centric I/UCRC.  He is involved extensively in IEEE scientific activities.  He is member of the DSP Committee of the IEEE Circuits and Systems society, and has served as a member in the technical committee on Statistical Signal and Array Processing of the IEEE Signal Processing society (SPS). He has also served as Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing and as General Co-chair of the 1999 International Conference on Acoustics Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP-99) in Phoenix.  He served as the IEEE Signal Processing Vice-President for Conferences and the Chair of the Conference Board.  He served as a member of the IEEE Signal Processing Executive Committee and as Associate Editor of the IEEE Signal Processing Letters.  He is a series editor for the Morgan and Claypool lecture series on algorithms and software.  He served as a member-at-large of the IEEE SPS Publications Board.  He has been Chair of the IEEE Communications and Signal Processing Chapter in Phoenix, and is a member of Eta Kappa Nu, and Sigma Xi. Andreas Spanias is co-recipient of the 2002 IEEE Donald G. Fink paper prize award and he is a Fellow of the IEEE since 2003. He served as Distinguished lecturer of the IEEE SPS in 2004 and he received the 2004 IEEE signal processing society award for meritorious scientific service.
