Trac Duy Tran received the B.S. and M.S. degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, in 1993 and 1994, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Wisconsin, Madison,
in 1998, all in Electrical Engineering. In July of 1998, Dr. Tran joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering,
The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, MD, where he currently holds the rank of Professor.
His research interests are in the field of digital signal processing,
particularly in sparse representation, sparse recovery, sampling, multi-rate systems, filter banks, transforms, wavelets, and their applications in signal analysis, compression,
processing, and communications. His pioneering research on integer-coefficient transforms and pre-/postfiltering operators has been adopted as critical components of
Microsoft Windows Media Video 9 and JPEG XR – the latest international still-image compression standard ISO/IEC 29199-2. Dr. Tran received the NSF CAREER award in 2001,
the William H. Huggins Excellence in Teaching Award from The Johns Hopkins University in 2007, the Capers and Marion McDonald Award for Excellence in Mentoring and Advising in 2009,
the IEEE Mikio Takagi Best Paper Award in 2012, the Second Prize by Information and Inference: A Journal of the IMA in 2017, and the IEEE GRSS Highest Impact Paper Award in 2018.
He is an IEEE Fellow for contributions in multi-rate and sparse signal processing.
