    About the Contributors


    Don Johnson received the S.B. and S.M. degrees in 1970, the E.E. degree in 1971, and the Ph.D. degree in 1974, all in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He joined M.I.T. Lincoln Laboratory as a staff member in 1974 to work on digital speech systems. In 1977, he joined the faculty of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Rice University, where he is currently the J.S. Abercrombie Professor Emeritus in that department and Professor Emeritus in the Statistics Department. At MIT and at Rice, he received several institution-wide teaching awards, including Rice’s George R. Brown Award for Excellence in Teaching and the George R. Brown award for Superior Teaching four times. He was a cofounder of Modulus Technologies, Inc. He was President of the IEEE’s Signal Processing Society, received the Signal Processing Society’s Meritorious Service Award for 2000 and was one of the IEEE Signal Processing Society’s Distinguished Lecturers. Professor Johnson is a Fellow of the IEEE.
