Rice University professor Richard Baraniuk has a giant vision: to create a free global online education system that puts the power of creation and collaboration in the hands of teachers worldwide. He’s realizing that vision with Connexions, a website that allows teachers to quickly “create, rip, mix and burn” coursework — without fear of copyright violations. Think of it as Napster for education.

Dr. Baraniuk’s research interests lie in the areas of signal, image, and information processing and include machine learning and compressive sensing.  Previously, he has worked in multiscale natural image modeling using wavelet-domain hidden Markov models and time-frequency analysis. His research has been funded by NSF, DARPA, ONR, AFOSR, AFRL, ARO, DOE, NGA, EPA, NATO, the Texas Instruments Leadership University Program, and several companies. He serves as Project Director for the ARO MURI on Opportunistic Sensing and the DARPA A2I Receiver Program.

He has been a Guest Editor of special issues for the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine on “Signal Processing and Networks” in 2002 and “Compressive Sampling” in 2008 and for the Proceedings of the IEEE on “Educational Technology” in 2008. He is currently an Associate Editor for the ACM Transactions on Sensor Networks and Applied and Computational Harmonic Analysis. He served as Co-Technical Program Chair for IEEE Statistical Signal Processing Workshop in 2007 and has served on several other conference technical program committees including IPSN, ICIP, ICASSP, and SPIE. He is a member of the DARPA Information Science and Technology (ISAT) Study Group.
