Moncef's bio

MONCEF GABBOUJ received his BS degree in electrical engineering in 1985 from Oklahoma State University, Stillwater, and his MS and PhD degrees in electrical engineering from Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, in 1986 and 1989, respectively.

Dr. Gabbouj is an Academy Professor with the Academy of Finland since January 2011. He held several visiting professorships at different universities, including The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong (2012-2013), Purdue University, West Lafayette, Indiana, USA (August-December 2011), the University of Southern California (January-June 2012), and the American University of Sharjah, UAE, (2007-2008). He holds a permanent position of Professor at the Department of Signal Processing, Tampere University of Technology, Tampere, Finland, where is leads the Multimedia Research Group. He was Head of the Department during 2002-2007, and served as Senior Research Fellow of the Academy of Finland in 1997-1998 and 2007-2008. His research interests include multimedia content-based analysis, indexing and retrieval, machine learning, nonlinear signal and image processing and analysis, voice conversion, and video processing and coding.

Dr. Gabbouj is a Fellow of the IEEE, a member of the European Academy and the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters. He is the past Chairman of the DSP Technical Committee of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society and member of the IEEE Fourier Award for Signal Processing Committee. He was Honorary Guest Professor of Jilin University, China (2005-2010). He served as associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, and was guest editor of Multimedia Tools and Applications, the European journal Applied Signal Processing. He is the past chairman of the IEEE Finland Section, the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, Technical Committee on Digital Signal Processing, and the IEEE SP/CAS Finland Chapter. He is a member of IEEE SP and CAS societies. Dr. Gabbouj is member of the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters.


Dr. Gabbouj was the supervisor of the author receiving the Best Student Paper Awards from the International Conference on Pattern Recognition, ICPR 2014; IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia, ISM 2011; and the 4th European Workshop on Visual Information Processing, EUVIP 2013. Two of his papers were ranked top 10 at the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing, ICIP 2013. He was recipient of the 2012 Nokia Foundation Visiting Professor Award, the 2005 Nokia Foundation Recognition Award, and co-recipient of the Myril B. Reed Best Paper Award from the 32nd Midwest Symposium on Circuits and Systems and the NORSIG Best Paper Award from the 1994 Nordic Signal Processing Symposium. He co-authored over 600 publications and supervised 40 PhD theses.
