Women in Signal Processing

I was born in Zaragoza, Spain, in 1978. As a child, I enjoyed studying and learning new things. I loved Math and the way they can be used to explain almost everything, but I was not attracted to technology at all! I never envisioned myself as an Engineer, but rather thought I would study Medicine, or something related to taking care and healing people. 

Pamela Guevara received her B.S. with honors in Electronics Engineering from Universidad de Concepción, Chile in 2001. She then received a Master’s degree in medical Imaging and a Ph.D. in Physics, both from the Université Paris-Sud, France, both with honors, in 2007 and 2011, respectively.

Norliza Mohd Noor is currently attached as Professor in UTM Razak Faculty of Technology and Informatics, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Kuala Lumpur Campus.  She received her B. Sc. In Electrical Engineering from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas and her Master of Electrical Engineering (by research) and PhD (Electrical Engineering) from UTM. 

Prof. Mihaela van der Schaar is the John Humphrey Plummer Professor of Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence and Medicine at the University of Cambridge, a Fellow at The Alan Turing Institute in London, and a Chancellor’s Professor at UCLA.

Mónica F. Bugallo received her Ph.D. in computer science and engineering from University of A Coruña, Spain. She is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Stony Brook University, NY, USA. Bugallo is the current Chair of the IEEE SPS Signal Processing Theory and Methods Technical Committee, Senior Associate Editor of the IEEE Signal Processing Letters and Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing. 

Dr. Supavadee Aramvith received her B.S. (first class honors) degree in Computer Science from Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand, in 1993. She received her M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Washington, Seattle, USA, in 1996 and 2001, respectively. 

Nita Patel is a Senior Director, Engineering at L3Harris Technologies. L3Harris is an agile, global aerospace and defense technology innovator, delivering end-to-end solutions that meet customers' mission-critical needs.

Dr. Birsen Yazici received her B.S. degrees in electrical engineering and mathematics from Bogazici University, Istanbul Turkey, in 1988, and the M.S.and Ph.D.degrees in mathematics and electrical engineering from Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN, USA, in 1990 and 1994, respectively. 

In this issue, we interviewed Dr. Athina Petropulu, the President-Elect of the IEEE Signal Processing Society for 2020-2021. Athina Petropulu is a Distinguished Professor at the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Department at Rutgers. Prior to joining Rutgers, she was faculty at Drexel University (1992-2010). 

Rabab Ward's career includes many firsts, particularly for women in engineering and signal processing, paving the way in three continents and spanning over four decades. This did not come as easy as we discovered.  After many years of perseverance, Ward became the first woman with a Ph.D. to be appointed as professor of electrical engineering in Canada in 1981.
