Biography:James E. Fowler received the B.S. degree in computer and information science engineering and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering in 1990, 1992, and 1996, respectively, all from the Ohio State University.

In 1995, Dr. Fowler was an intern researcher at AT&T Labs in Holmdel, NJ, and, in 1997, he held an NSF-sponsored postdoctoral assignment at the Université de Nice–Sophia Antipolis, France. In 2004, he was a visiting professor in the Département TSI at École Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications (ENST), Paris, France, and, in 2009, a visiting professor in the IRCCyN Lab of Polytech’Nantes, Nantes, France. He is currently a professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Mississippi State University in Starkville, MS, and is also a researcher in the Geosystems Research Institute (GRI) at Mississippi State. He currently serves as Graduate Program Director of the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Mississippi State.

Dr. Fowler is an Associate Editor for IEEE Transactions on Multimedia and the EURASIP Journal of Image & Video Processing; he previously was an Associate Editor for IEEE Signal Processing Letters. He served as a Guest Editor for the special issue on “Wavelets in Source Coding, Communications, and Networks” which appeared in the EURASIP Journal of Image & Video Processing in January 2007. He is a member of the Image, Video, and Multidimensional Signal Processing Technical Committee (IVMSP TC) of the IEEE Signal Processing Society; he currently serves as chair of the Awards Subcommittee as well as Webmaster of the IVMSP TC. Dr. Fowler is a member of the program committee for the Data Compression Conference (DCC), currently serving as Publicity Chair. Dr. Fowler has served as an Area Chair on the Technical Program Committees for the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (2008, 2009); the IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (2008, 2009); and the European Signal Processing Conference (2008). Dr. Fowler is a Senior Member of the IEEE and a member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society.

Research Interest: My research interests center around the Communication of Images, Video, and Geospatial Data, including image processing and coding, video coding, and data-communication systems. Specific areas of research include:

* wavelet-based video and image coding
* representation, compression, and ranked access of terascale datasets arising in scientific simulations
* coding of geospatial data, particularly hyperspectral imagery
* image watermarking
