Signal Processing and Adaptive Sensing (SPAS) Laboratory


Antonia Papandreou-Suppappola
received her Ph.D. in Electrical
Engineering at the University of Rhode Island in 1995. She is currently
a Professor of Electrical Engineering at the School of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering at Arizona State University (ASU). She joined the ASU faculty as an Assistant Professor in 1999 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2004 and to Professor in 2008.

Her research interests and expertise are in the areas of: Sensor and Information Processing, Adaptive Waveform Design for Agile Sensing,
Time-varying Signal and System Processing, Detection, Estimation, and Tracking, and Structural Health Management.

Prof. Papandreou-Suppappola has received research funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) (including a CAREER award in 2002), Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), and Office of Naval Research (ONR). She is currently participating in two AFOSR-sponsored Mutlidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) efforts: Waveform Agile Sensing and Structural Health Monitoring and Prognosis of Aerospace Systems .

She is an active participant of the Sensor, Signal and Information Processing (SenSIP) Center and the Adaptive Intelligent Materials and Systems (AIMS) Center at ASU. She is the recipient of the IEEE Phoenix Section Outstanding Faculty for Research award (2003); Fulton School of Engineering Teaching Excellence Award, 2005; Top 5% of Fulton School of Engineering Teachers Teaching Excellence Award, 2009; IEEE Phoenix Section Society Research Award for the SenSIP Center, 2008.

She was recently elected to the position of Member-at-Large of the IEEE Signal Processing Society Board of Governors (2010-2012), and she is currently the Technical Area Chair for Array Processing and Statistical Signal Processing of the 2010 Asilomar Conference on Signals, Systems, and Computers. She has served as the Guest Editor for the special issue on Waveform-Agile Sensing and Processing for the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine (January 2009); Special Sessions Chair of the 2010 IEEE International Conference of Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing; General Chair of the 2008 Sensor Signal and Information Processing Workshop; Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing (2005-2009); Technical Committee Member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society on Signal Processing Theory and Methods (2003-2008); and Treasurer of the IEEE Signal Processing Society Conference Board (2004-2006).
