Robert H. Morelos-Zaragoza was born in Houma, Louisiana, U.S.A. He received the BSEE and MSEE degrees from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) in 1985 and 1987, respectively, and the PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Hawaii at Manoa, in 1992. He was an Assistant Professor at Instituto Tecnologico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (ITESM) of Mexico in 1992-1993. In 1993-1995, he held postdoctoral positions at Osaka University, Japan, and Nara Instutue of Science and Technology, Japan. Robert was a research associate of Imai Laboratory of the University of Tokyo, in 1995-1997. During the period 1997-1999, he was a staff member of the Channel Coding Group of LSI Logic Corporation. In 1999-2002, he was a researcher of Sony Computer Science Laboratories (Sony CSL) in Tokyo, Japan. Robert joined the faculty of the Department of Electrical Engineering of SJSU, as an associate professor, in August 2002. His current research interests include error correcting coding (ECC/FEC), advanced digital communication receiver design, software-defined radio (SDR), space-time signal processing techniques and ultra-wideband (UWB) communication systems. Prof. Morelos-Zaragoza is a senior member of IEEE, and member of IEICE (Japan) and of Eta Kappa Nu.
