Profile Summary

Dr. Miguel Vélez-Reyes is the George W. Edwards/El Paso Electric Distinguished Professor in Engineering and Chair of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP). He received the BSEE. degree from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez (UPRM), in 1985, and the MS and PhD degrees from MIT in 1988, and 1992, respectively. He was a member of the faculty at UPRM from 1992 to 2012. He has held faculty internship positions with the Air Force Research Laboratories, and the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. His research interests are in integrating physical, statistical, and machine-learning approaches for information extraction from dynamic systems using remote or minimally intrusive sensing. He has over 160 publications in journals and conference proceedings and has contributed to four books. He was the Founding Director of the UPRM Institute for Research in Integrative Systems and Engineering and was Associate Director of the NSF Engineering Research Center for Subsurface Sensing and Imaging Systems led by Northeastern University. He was director for the UPRM Tropical Center for Earth and Space Studies, a NASA University Research Center. In 1997, Dr. Vélez-Reyes was one of 60 recipients from across the United States and its territories of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) from the White House. In 2005, he was inducted in the Academy of Arts and Sciences of Puerto Rico. In 2009, Dr. Velez-Reyes was elected Fellow of SPIE for his contributions to hyperspectral remote sensing. He is a senior member of the IEEE. Dr. Velez-Reyes is the Chair of the SPIE Conference on Algorithms and Technologies for Multispectral, Hyperspectral, and Ultraspectral Imagery.
