Brief Biography

Aleksandar Dogandzic received the Dipl. Ing. degree (summa cum laude) in electrical engineering from the University of Belgrade, Belgrade, Serbia, in 1995, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering and computer science from the University of Illinois at Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA, in 1997 and 2001, respectively. In August 2001, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Iowa State University, Ames, IA, USA, where he is currently an Associate Professor. His research interests include statistical signal processing: theory and applications. Dr. Dogandziˇ c has served on editorial boards of the IEEE T ´ RANSACTIONS ON SIGNAL PROCESSING, THE IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON SIGNAL AND INFORMATION PROCESSING OVER NETWORKS, and the IEEE SIGNAL PROCESSING LETTERS. He has served as a General Co-chair of the Fourth and Fifth International Workshops on Computational Advances in Multi-Sensor Adaptive Processing in 2011 and 2013 and a Technical Co-chair of the 2014 and 2016 IEEE Sensor Array and Multichannel Workshops. He received the 2003 Young Author Best Paper Award and the 2004 Signal Processing Magazine Best Paper Award, both by the IEEE Signal Processing Society. In 2006, he received the CAREER Award by the National Science Foundation.
