Short Biography

Bernard C. Levy received the diploma of Ingenieur Civil des Mines from the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Mines, Paris, France, in 1974, and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University, Stanford, CA, in 1979.

From July 1979 to June 1987, he was Assistant and then Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at M.I.T. Since July 1987, he has been with the University of California at Davis (UC Davis), where he is a Professor of Electrical Engineering and a member of the Graduate Group in Applied Mathematics. He served as Chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UC Davis from 1996 to 2000. He was a Visiting Scientist at the Institut de Recherche en Informatique et Systemes Aleatoires (IRISA), Rennes, France from January to July 1993, and at the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et Automatique (INRIA), Rocquencourt, France, from September to December 2001. His research interests are in statistical signal processing, estimation, detection, and multidimensional signal processing.

He served as an Associate Editor of Signal Processing from March 2011 to Dec. 2015, of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems I from 2006 to 2007, of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II from 2004 to 2005, and of the EURASIP Journal on Applied Signal Processing from 2005 to 2006. He was a member of the Image and Multidimensional Signal Processing technical committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society from 1992 to 1998. He is a Fellow of the IEEE, and a member of SIAM.
