Biography
Paul H. Siegel received the S.B. and Ph.D. degrees in mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge, in 1975 and 1979, respectively.
He held a Chaim Weizmann Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Courant Institute, New York University. He was with the IBM Research Division in San Jose, CA, from 1980 to 1995. He joined the faculty at the University of California, San Diego in July 1995, where he is currently Distinguished Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the Jacobs School of Engineering. He is affiliated with the Center for Memory and Recording Research where he holds an endowed chair and served as Director from 2000 to 2011. His primary research interests lie in the areas of information theory and communications, particularly coding and modulation techniques, with applications to digital data storage and transmission.
Prof. Siegel was a member of the Board of Governors of the IEEE Information Theory Society from 1991 to 1996 and from 2009 to 2014. He served as CoGuest Editor of the May 1991 Special Issue on “Coding for Storage Devices” of the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory. He served the same Transactions as Associate Editor for Coding Techniques from 1992 to 1995, and as EditorinChief from July 2001 to July 2004. He was also CoGuest Editor of the May/September 2001 twopart issue on “The Turbo Principle: From Theory to Practice” and the February 2016 issue on “Recent Advances in Capacity Approaching Codes” of the IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications.
