Biography

Paul H. Siegel was born in Berkeley, California in 1953. He received the B.S. degree in mathematics in 1975 and the Ph.D. degree in mathematics in 1979, both from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He held a Chaim Weizmann fellowship during a year of postdoctoral study at the Courant Institute, New York University.

He joined the research staff at IBM in 1980. From 1984 through 1993, he was manager of the Signal Processing and Coding project at the IBM Almaden Research Center in San Jose, California, and in 1994, he was named manager of the Mathematics and Related Computer Science department at Almaden. He was a Visiting Associate Professor at the University of California, San Diego while at the Center for Magnetic Recording Research during the 1989-90 academic year. He was appointed to the faculty of the School of Engineering at the University of California, San Diego in July 1995, where he is currently Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He is affiliated with the Center for Wireless Communications and he was appointed Director of the Center for Magnetic Recording Research in September 2000.

His primary research interest is the mathematical foundations of signal processing and coding, especially as applicable to digital data storage and communications. He holds several patents in the area of coding and detection for digital recording systems, and was named a Master Inventor at IBM Research in 1994.

Prof. Siegel was co-recipient, with R. Karabed, of the 1992 IEEE Information Theory Society Paper Award for the paper "Matched Spectral Null Codes for Partial Response Channels", and shared the 1993 IEEE Communications Society Leonard G. Abraham Prize Paper Award with B. Marcus and J. K. Wolf for the paper "Finite-State Modulation Codes for Data Storage."

Prof. Siegel was a member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Information Theory Society from 1991-1996. He served as co-Guest Editor of the May 1991 Special Issue on Coding for Storage Devices of the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory, and served as Associate Editor for Coding Techniques from 1992 to 1995. He was Guest Editor-in-Chief of the May/September 2001 double-issue of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications on The Turbo Principle: From Theory to Practice. He served as Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory from July 1, 2001 to June 30, 2004.

Prof. Siegel is a member of Phi Beta Kappa and is a Fellow of the IEEE. He was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2008.
