Woon-Seng Gan received his BEng (1st Class Hons) and PhD degrees, both in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Strathclyde, UK in 1989 and 1993 respectively. He joined the School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore, as a Lecturer and Senior Lecturer in 1993 and 1998 respectively. In 1999, he was promoted to Associate Professor. From 2008-2011, he was the Deputy Director of the Center for Signal Processing. He is currently the Head of Information Engineering Division, School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in Nanyang Technological University. His research interests include adaptive signal processing, active noise control, directional sound system, psycho-acoustical signal processing, and real-time embedded systems. Dr. Gan has won the Institute of Engineer Singapore (IES) Prestigious Engineering Achievement Award in 2001 for the work on Audio Beam System. He has published more than 200 international refereed journals and conferences, and has been granted four Singapore and US patents. He has co-authored a book on Digital Signal Processors: Architectures, Implementations, and Applications (Prentice Hall, 2005). This book has since been translated to chinese for adoption by universities in China. He is also the leading author of a new book on Embedded Signal Processing with the Micro Signal Architecture, (Wiley-IEEE, 2007). A book on Subband Adaptive Filtering: Theory and Implementation was also published by John Wiley in August 2009. He is currently a Fellow of Audio Engineering Society, Senior Member of IEEE, and Professional Engineers of Singapore. He is also an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transaction on Audio, Speech, and Language Processing, Editorial member of the APSIPA Transactions on Signal and Information Processing, Associate Editor of the EURASIP Journal on Audio, Speech and Music Processing; and Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
