Dr. Brian L. Evans is the Engineering Foundation Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. He earned his B.S.E.E.C.S. (1987) degree from the Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, and his M.S.E.E. (1988) and Ph.D.E.E. (1993) degrees from the Georgia Institute of Technology. From 1993 to 1996, he was a post-doctoral researcher at the University of California, Berkeley. In 1996, he joined the faculty at UT Austin. Prof. Evans’ research bridges the gap between signal processing theory and embedded real-time implementation in the application spaces of digital communications and digital image/video processing. His current research efforts include interference mitigation algorithms for wireless communication systems, powerline communication system testbeds for enabling smart power grids, video display algorithms for cell phones, and design automation tools for multicore embedded systems.
