  • Prof. Paulo S. R. Diniz was born in Niteroi, Brazil. He received the Electronics Engineer degree from the Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) in 1978, the M.Sc. degree from COPPE/UFRJ in 1981, and the Ph.D. from Concordia University, Montreal, PQ, Canada, in 1984, all in electrical engineering.

    Since 1979, he has been with the undergraduate Department of Electronics and Computer Engineering at the UFRJ. He has also been with the graduate Program of Electrical Engineering at COPPE/UFRJ since 1984, where he is presently a Professor. He served as undergraduate course Coordinator and as Chairman of the graduate department. He has received the Rio de Janeiro State Scientist Award from the Governor of Rio de Janeiro State, and the Distinguished Research Scientist Award from COPPE/UFRJ (2002).

    From January 1991 to July 1992, he was a visiting Research Associate in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of University of Victoria, Victoria, BC, Canada. In 2002 he served as Melchor Endowment Chair Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering of the University of Notre Dame, Notre Dame, USA. He also held a Docent position at the Signal Processing laboratory of Aalto University (former Helsinki University of Technology), and has taught short courses at numerous institutions around the world.

    His teaching and research interests are in analog and digital signal processing, adaptive signal processing, digital communications, wireless communications, multirate systems, stochastic processes, and electronic circuits. He has published over 300 refereed papers in some of these areas and wrote two textbooks and a research book. He has received some awards for best papers and technical achievements.

    He has served as the technical co-Chair of the 9th IEEE International Signal Processing for Advances in Wireless Communications (SPAWC) held in Recife in 2008, and as general co-Chair for the IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS-2011) held in Rio in 2011. He was the Technical Program Chair of the 1995 MWSCAS held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He has served Vice President for region 9 of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society and as Chairman of the DSP technical committee of the same Society. He is also a Fellow of IEEE (for fundamental contributions to the design and implementation of fixed and adaptive filters and Electrical Engineering Education) and a Fellow of EURASIP (for contributions to digital signal processing, adaptive filtering, and communications). He has served as associate editor for the following Journals: IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems II: Analog and Digital Signal Processing from 1996 to 1999, IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing from 1999 to 2002, and the Circuits, Systems and Signal Processing Journal from 1998 to 2002. He was a distinguished lecturer of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society for the years 2000 to 2001 and had served as distinguished lecturer of the IEEE Signal Processing Society in 2004. He served as regional director of the IEEE Signal Processing Society 2015-2016. He is currently serving as Senior Editor of the IEEE Open Journal of Signal Processing, and as a member of the selection committe of two IEEE level medals.

    He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering (ANE) and the Brazilian Academy of Science (ABC).
