About the Author
Woon-Seng Gan received his B.Eng (1st Class Hons) and PhD degrees, both in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Strathclyde, UK in 1989 and 1993 respectively. He joined the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, as a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in 1993 and 1998 respectively. In 1999, he was promoted to Associate Professor. He is currently the Deputy Director of the Center for Signal Processing at Nanyang Technological University. His research interests include adaptive signal processing, psycho-acoustical signal processing, audio processing, and real-time embedded systems. He has published more than 170 international refereed journals and conference papers, and has been awarded four Singapore and US patents. He has previously co-authored two technical books on Digital Signal Processors: Architectures, Implementations, and Applications (Prentice Hall, 2005) and Embedded Signal Processing with the Micro Signal Architecture (Wiley-IEEE, 2007).
Dr. Gan has also won the Institute of Engineers Singapore (IES) Prestigious Engineering Achievement Award in 2001 for his work on Audio Beam System. He is currently serving as an Associate Editor for the EURASIP Journal on Audio, Speech and Music Processing, and EURASIP Research Letters in Signal Processing. He is also a Senior Member of IEEE and serves as a committee member in the IEEE Signal Processing Society Education Technical Committee.
Sen M. Kuo received the B.S. degree from National Taiwan Normal University, Taipei, Taiwan, in 1976 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM in 1983 and 1985, respectively. He is a Professor and served as the department chair from 2002 to 2008 in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, IL. He was with Texas Instruments, Houston, TX in 1993, and with Chung-Ang University, Seoul, Korea in 2008. He is the leading author of four books: Active Noise Control Systems (Wiley, 1996), Real-Time Digital Signal Processing (Wiley, 2001, 2006), and Digital Signal Processors (Prentice Hall, 2005), and a co-author of Embedded Signal Processing with the Micro Signal Architecture (Wiley 2007). He holds seven US patents, and has published over 200 technical papers. His research focuses on active noise and vibration control, real-time DSP applications, adaptive echo and noise cancellation, digital audio and communication applications, and biomedical signal processing. Prof. Kuo received the IEEE first-place transactions (Consumer Electronics) paper award in 1993, and the faculty-of-year award in 2001 for accomplishments in research and scholarly areas. He served as an associate editor for IEEE Transactions on Audio, Speech and Language Processing, and serves as a member of the editorial boards for EURASIP Research Letters in Signal Processing and Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
