Professor Peter Stoica

Peter (Petre) Stoica[1] (born 1949) is a researcher and educator in the field of signal processing and its applications to radar/sonar, communications and bio-medicine.[2][3][4] He is a professor of Signal and System Modeling at Uppsala University in Sweden, and a Member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences, the United States National Academy of Engineering (Foreign Member), the Romanian Academy (foreign honorary, since 1991),[5] the European Academy of Sciences,[6] and the Royal Society of Sciences. He is also a Fellow of IEEE,[7] EURASIP,[8] and the Royal Statistical Society.

He is known for his theoretical contributions to system identification and modeling, spectral analysis, array signal processing, space-time coding, and waveform design for active sensing. His practical contributions include the areas of wireless communications, microwave imaging for breast cancer detection, radar/sonar systems, acoustic source mapping, landmine and explosive detection, and magnetic resonance spectroscopy and imaging. His books on System Identification, Spectral Analysis, and Space-Time Coding for Wireless Communications have been used in both undergraduate and graduate courses and are highly cited (his works rank in the top 1% by citations for the field of engineering).[9] He has been included on the ISI list of the 250 most highly cited researchers in engineering in the world.[10][11]
