Andreas Spanias joined ASU in 1988. He has published more than 75 journal and 200 conference papers and contributed several book chapters. He authored two textbooks in DSP and audio coding and eight Morgan-Claypool Lecture Series research monographs. He has served as associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing, as the general co-chair of the IEEE ICASSP-99 and as vice-president of the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS). He received the 2005 IEEE SPS Meritorious Service Award. He served as the founding associate director of the ASU School of Arts, Media and Engineering (AME), Director of the SenSIP Center and Industry Consortium, which is an NSF I/UCRC, PI of a major multi-university NSF program and Co-PI on the NSF AME IGERT. He is a book series editor for Morgan-Claypool Lecture Series. He co-authored two U.S. patents (US 8,392,198 B1, US 20110150229 A1).
