Biography

Pierre Moulin received his D.Sc. from Washington University in St. Louis in 1990. After working for five years as a Research Scientist for Bell Communications Research in Morristown, New Jersey, he joined the University of Illinois, where he is currently Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Research Professor in the Coordinated Science Laboratory, faculty member in the Beckman Institute's Image Formation and Processing Group, and affiliate professor in the Department of Statistics. His fields of professional interest are image and video processing, statistical signal processing and modeling, decision theory, information hiding, and signal authentication; and the application of multiresolution signal analysis, optimization theory, and fast algorithms to these areas.

Honors

NSF CAREER award (1997); IEEE Signal Processing Society Best Paper Awards (1997, 2002); IEEE Fellow (2003); U of I Center for Advanced Study (2003).

Research

Moulin's research involves the development of novel methods for modeling and processing signals, images, and video, with focus on problems of compression, restoration, and more recently, information hiding and authentication. In this context he has been developing an information theory of watermarking and data hiding, as well as codes whose performance approaches the fundamental information-theoretic limits.
