Andreas Spanias joined ASU in 1988. He published more than 65 journal and 200 conference papers and contributed several book chapters. He authored/co-authored two textbooks in DSP (LL Press) and Audio Coding (Wiley) and three Morgan-Claypool Lecture Series books. He and his student team developed the award-winning Java-DSP software and its iPhone/Android extensions.  He  served as associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, general co-chair of IEEE ICASSP-99, and as vice-president Conferences of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS). He received the 2005 IEEE SPS Meritorious Service Award. He is Director of the SenSIP Center and NSF I/UCRC and Director of a major Phase 3 multi-university NSF program. He served as founding associate director of the School of Arts, Media and Engineering (AME), and Co-PI on the NSF AME IGERT. He is a book series editor for Morgan-Claypool Lecture Series.
