André L. F. de Almeida received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in electrical engineering from the Federal University of Ceará, Brazil, in 2001 and 2003, respectively, and the double Ph.D. degree in Sciences and Teleinformatics Engineering from the University of Nice, Sophia Antipolis, France, and the Federal University of Ceará, Fortaleza, Brazil, in 2007. He is currently an Assistant Professor with the Department of Teleinformatics Engineering of the Federal University of Ceará. During fall 2002, he was a visiting researcher at Ericsson Research Labs, Stockholm, Sweden. From 2007 to 2008, he held a one year research position at the I3S Laboratory, CNRS, France. In 2008, he was awarded a CAPES/COFECUB research fellowship with the I3S Laboratory, CNRS, France. In 2010, he was appointed as a research fellow of CNPq (the Brazilian National Council for Scientific and Technological Development). He has been granted Visiting Professor positions with the I3S Laboratory/CNRS and the University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis, respectively (in 2012, 2013, and 2015).
Dr. Almeida has published over 40 refereed journal articles, 90 conference papers and 5 book chapters. He has served in the Technical Program Committees of several IEEE SPS conferences and workshops. He was a Guest Editor for the EURASIP Journal on Advances in Signal Processing, and serves as an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing since 2012. He is an elected member of the IEEE Sensor Array and Multichannel Technical Committee (SAM-TC) and serves as the General Co-Chair for the 7th IEEE International Workshop on Computational Advances in Multi-Sensor Adaptive Processing (CAMSAP), Curaçao, Dutch Antilles, December 10-13, 2017. His current research interests are on tensor signal processing with applications to sensor arrays, cooperative communication systems, and big data analysis.
