received the Electrical Engineering and Ph.D. degrees (both with honors) from the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona, Spain, in 1998 and 2003, respectively. He is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, Hong Kong. He has held several research appointments, namely, at King's College London (KCL), London, UK, during 1998; Technical University of Catalonia (UPC), Barcelona, from January 1999 to December 2003; Stanford University, Stanford, CA, from April to November 2001; Telecommunications Technological Center of Catalonia (CTTC), Barcelona, from January to December 2002; Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden, from August to November 2003; University of Rome “La Sapienza”, Rome, Italy, from November 2003 to February 2004; Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, from March 2004 to July 2006. His primary research interests include information-theoretic and signal processing aspects of MIMO channels, with special emphasis on convex optimization theory and majorization theory applied to communication systems. He is an Associate Editor of IEEE Trans. on Signal Processing. Dr. Palomar received a 2004/06 Fulbright Research Fellowship; the 2004 Young Author Best Paper Award by the IEEE Signal Processing Society; (co-recipient of) the 2006 Best Student Paper Award at ICASSP'06; the 2002/03 best Ph.D. prize in Information Technologies and Communications by the Technical University of Catalonia (UPC); the 2002/03 Rosina Ribalta first prize for the Best Doctoral Thesis in Information Technologies and Communications by the Epson Foundation; and the 2004 prize for the best Doctoral Thesis in Advanced Mobile Communications by the Vodafone Foundation and COIT.

sor of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University, and was previously an assistant profes- sor of Electrical Engineering at Caltech. She has also held industry positions at Maxim Technologies and at AT&T Bell Laboratories, and is currently on leave from Stanford as co- founder and CTO of Quantenna Communications, Inc. Her research includes work on capacity of wireless channels and networks, wireless communication theory, energy-constrained wireless communications, wireless communications for distributed control, and cross-layer design of wireless networks. She is author of the book “Wireless Communications” and co-author of the book “MIMO Wireless Communications,” both published by Cambridge University Press. She received the B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from U.C. Berkeley. Dr. Goldsmith is a Fellow of the IEEE and of Stanford, and currently holds Stanford’s Bredt Faculty Development Scholar Chair. She has received several awards for her research, including the National Academy of Engineering Gilbreth Lectureship, the Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship, the Stanford Terman Fellowship, the National Science Foundation CAREER Development Award, and the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award. She was also a co-recipient of the 2005 IEEE Communications Society and Information Theory Society joint paper award. She currently serves as associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory and as editor for the Journal on Foundations and Trends in Communications and Information Theory and in Networks. She was previously an editor for the IEEE Transactions on Communications and for the IEEE Wireless Communications Magazine, and has served as guest editor for several IEEE journal and magazine special issues. Dr. Goldsmith is active in committees and conference organization for the IEEE Information Theory and Communications Societies, and is currently serving as technical program cochair for ISIT 2007. She is an elected member of the Board of Governers for both societies, a distinguished lecturer for the IEEE Communications Society, and the second vice-president and student committee chair of the IEEE Information Theory Society.
