Biography

Minh N. Do is a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC). His work covers image and multi-dimensional signal processing, wavelets and multiscale geometric analysis, computational imaging, and visual information representation, and has led to about 50 journal papers. He received a Silver Medal from the 32nd International Mathematical Olympiad in 1991, a University Medal from the University of Canberra in 1997, a Doctorate Award from the EPFL in 2001, a CAREER Award from the National Science Foundation in 2003, and a Young Author Best Paper Award from IEEE in 2008. He was named a Beckman Fellow at the Center for Advanced Study, UIUC, in 2006, and received a Xerox Award for Faculty Research from the College of Engineering, UIUC, in 2007. He was an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, and a member of the IEEE Technical Committees on Signal Processing Theory and Methods, and on Image, Video, and Multidimensional Signal Processing. He was elected as an IEEE Fellow for his contributions to image representation and computational imaging. He is a co-founder and Chief Scientist of Personify Inc., a spin-off from UIUC to commercialize depth-based visual communication.
