The Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) announces that two MIT faculty have joined the Laboratory.
Professor Elfar Adalsteinsson is Assistant Professor of Health Sciences and Technology and Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering. Professor Adalsteinsson conducts research on medical imaging with magnetic resonance, focusing on optimal methods for acquisition, reconstruction and processing of in vivo imaging data. His interests include techniques for efficient sampling and spatial encoding of spectroscopic magnetic resonance data, whereby small signals, originating, for example, specifically from neurons in the brain, yield information not observed with conventional structural imaging. Applications of these and related methods include a study of the progression of Alzheimer’s disease and characterization of Multiple Sclerosis. Professor Adalsteinsson received a B.S. in 1989 from the University of Iceland, Reykjavik, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering in 1991 and 1995, respectively, from Stanford University. From 1995 until his arrival in RLE, Elfar was with the Lucas Center at Stanford.
Professor Vladimir M. Stojanovic is Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering. His research interests include optimization of integrated circuits and systems application of convex optimization to digital communications, analog and VLSI circuits, modeling of noise and dynamics in circuits and systems, communications and signal processing architectures, high-speed electrical and optical links, on-chip signalling, clock generation and distribution and high-speed digital and mixed-signal IC design. Professor Stojanovic received the Dipl.Ing. from the University of Belgrade in 1998, the M.S.E.E. and Ph.D. from Stanford University in 2000 and 2005 respectively. From 1999 to 2004, he was Principal Engineer in the Logic Interface Division of Rambus, Inc.
