Steven Weller received his B.E. degree with honors in computer engineering in 1988, his M.E. degree in electrical engineering in 1992, and his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering in 1994, all from The University of Newcastle, Australia, Newcastle, NSW, Australia. From 1994 to 1997, he worked as a Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, The University of Melbourne, Melbourne, VIC, Australia, and was a member of the Centre for Sensor Signal and Information Processing (CSSIP). In 1997, he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Newcastle, Australia as a Senior Lecturer. Since 2007, he has been an Associate Professor in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Newcastle, Australia where he served as Head of School from 2007 to 2009. During 2004, he was on sabbatical leave at The University of Melbourne and Agere Systems Australia in North Ryde, Sydney, NSW, Australia, where he worked in the area of application-specific integrated circuits for third-generation (3G) terminals. He was the General Chair of the 2004 Australian Communications Theory Workshop (AusCTW'04) and served on the Executive Board of the Australian Research Council (ARC) Communications Research Network (ACoRN) in 2004-2005. During 2006, he served as Chair of IEEE SA/ACT/Vic/NSW Information Theory Chapter. He is a Member of the IEEE and the American Mathematical Society. His principal research interests are in low-density parity-check codes and iterative decoding, multi-input multioutput (MIMO) wireless communications, and the theory and applications of dynamical systems.
