Biography -- Scott C. Douglas

Scott C. Douglas received the B.S. (with distinction), M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, Stanford, CA, in 1988, 1989, and 1992, respectively. From 1992 to1998, he was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT. Since August 1998, he has been with the Department of Electrical Engineering in the School of Engineering and Applied Science at Southern Methodist University, Dallas, TX, where he is a Professor. His research activities include adaptive filtering, active noise control, blind deconvolution and source separation, and VLSI/hardware implementations of digital signal processing systems.

Dr. Douglas received the Hughes Masters Fellowship Award in 1988 and the NSF Graduate Fellowship Award in 1989. He was a recipient of the NSF CAREER Award in 1995. He is the author or co-author of eight book chapters and more than 180 articles in journals and conference proceedings; he also served as a section editor for The Digital Signal Processing Handbook (Boca Raton, FL: CRC Press, 1998). He is a senior member of the IEEE, an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing (IEEE), IEEE Signal Processing Letters (IEEE), and the Journal of VLSI Signal Processing Systems (Kluwer), and a member of both the Neural Networks for Signal Processing Technical Committee and the Signal Processing for Education Technical Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society. He served or is serving on the Technical Program Committees of the 1995 IEEE Symposium on Circuits and Systems, Seattle, WA, the 1998 IEEE Digital Signal Processing Workshop, Bryce Canyon, UT, and the 2000 IEEE Workshop on Independent Component Analysis and Signal Separation, Helsinki, Finland. He is the Proceedings Co-Chair of the 1999 IEEE Workshop on Neural Networks for Signal Processing, Madison, WI, the Proceedings Editor of the 1999 International Symposium on Active Control of Sound and Vibration, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, the Technical Co-Chair of the 2000 IEEE Digital Signal Processing Workshop, Hunt, TX, and the Exhibits Co-Chair of the 2001 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing, Salt Lake City, UT. He has one patent pending. He is a frequent consultant to industry in the areas of signal processing and adaptive filtering and is a member of Phi Beta Kappa and Tau Beta Pi.
