Jose C. Principe is a Distinguished Professor of electrical and computer engineering and biomedical engineering at the University of Florida where he teaches advanced signal processing,machine learning, and artificial neural networks (ANNs) modeling. He is a BellSouth Professor and the Founder and Director of the University of Florida Computational NeuroEngineering Laboratory (CNEL). His primary area of interest is processing of time-varying signals with adaptive neural models. The CNEL has been studying signal and pattern recognition principles based on information-theoretic criteria (entropy and mutual information). He is an IEEE Fellow. He is a Member of the ADCOM of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, a Member of the Board of Governors of the International Neural Network Society, and the Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering. He is a Member of the Advisory Board of the University of Florida Brain Institute. He has more than 90 publications in refereed journals, 10 book chapters, and 200 conference papers. He directed 35 Ph.D. dissertations and 45 Master theses. He recently wrote an interactive electronic book entitled Neural and Adaptive Systems: Fundamentals Through Simulation published by John Wiley and Sons.
