Prof. Sharon Gannot

Short Bio & Research Interests

Sharon Gannot received the B.Sc. degree (summa cum laude) from the Technion – Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel, in 1986, and the M.Sc. (cum laude) and Ph.D. degrees from Tel-Aviv University, Tel Aviv, Israel, in 1995 and 2000, respectively, all in electrical engineering. In 2001, he held a postdoctoral position with the Department of Electrical Engineering, KU Leuven, Leuven, Belgium. From 2002 to 2003, he held a Research and Teaching position with the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Technion – Israel Institute of Technology. He is currently a Full Professor with the Faculty of Engineering, Bar-Ilan University, Ramat-Gan, Israel, where he is heading Data Science Program. He also serves as the Faculty Vice Dean.

Dr. Gannot’s reserach lab, the Acoustic Signal Processing Laboratory, inaugurated in 2009, is characterized by a controllable reverberation time and equipped with state-of-the-art multichannel transmission, acquisition and measurement capabilities.

Dr. Gannot’s research interests include statistical signal processing and machine learning.
