H. Meyr received his M.S and Ph.D. from ETH Zurich, Switzerland. He spent over 12 years in various research and management positions in industry before accepting a professorship in Electrical Engineering at Aachen University of Technology (RWTH Aachen) in 1977. He has worked extensively in the areas of communication theory, synchronization, and digital signal processing for the last thirty years. His research has been applied to the design of many industrial products. At RWTH Aachen he heads an institute involved in the analysis and design of complex signal processing systems for communication applications. He was a co-founder of CADIS GmbH (acquired 1993 by Synopsys, Mountain View, California) a company which commercialized the tool suite COSSAP. Dr. Meyr is currently serving on the board of of two companies in the communications industry. Recently he was also appointed as a member of the technical advisory board of MorpICs, Cupertino, California.

Dr. Meyr has published numerous IEEE papers and holds many patents . He is author (together with Dr. G. Ascheid) of the book "Synchronization in Digital Communications", Wiley 1990 and of the book "Digital Communication Receivers. Synchronization, Channel Estimation, and Signal Processing" (together with Dr. M. Moeneclaey and Dr. S. Fechtel), Wiley, October 1997. In 1998 he was a visiting scholar at UC Berkeley's wireless research center (BWRC). Recently,he was elected as the Mc Kay distinguished lecturer at the EE department of the UC Berkeley for the spring term 2000. The lecture series will be on "Design and Implementation of Advanced Digital Receivers for wireless Communications." As well as being a Fellow of the IEEE he has served as Vice President for International Affairs of the IEEE Communications Society.
