BACKGROUND

Michael B. Wakin received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering and the B.A. degree in mathematics in 2000 (summa cum laude), the M.S. degree in electrical engineering in 2002, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering in 2007, all from Rice University. He was an NSF Mathematical Sciences Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the California Institute of Technology from 2006-2007 and an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor from 2007-2008. His research interests include sparse, geometric, and manifold-based models for signal and image processing, approximation, compression, compressive sensing, and dimensionality reduction. In 2007, Dr. Wakin shared the Hershel M. Rich Invention Award from Rice University for the design of a single-pixel camera based on compressive sensing; in 2008, Dr. Wakin received the DARPA Young Faculty Award for his research in compressive multi-signal processing for environments such as sensor and camera networks; and in 2012, Dr. Wakin received the NSF CAREER Award for research into dimensionality reduction techniques for structured data sets. Dr. Wakin is an Associate Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Letters. He has been selected as a Ben L. Fryrear Professors. He will hold the title "Ben L. Fryrear Professor" for a period of three years, from January 2015 to December 2017.
