Behrouz Farhang-Boroujeny received the B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from Teheran University, Iran, in 1976, the M.Eng. degree from University of Wales Institute of Science and Technology, UK, in 1977, and the Ph.D. degree from Imperial College, University of London, UK, in 1981.

From 1981 to 1989 he was with the Isfahan University of Technology, Isfahan, Iran. From 1989 to 2000 he was with the National University of Singapore. Since August 2000, he has been with the University of Utah where he is now a professor and Associate Chair of the department.

He is an expert in the general area of signal processing. His current scientific interests are adaptive filters, multicarrier communications, detection techniques for space-time coded systems, cognitive radio, and signal processing applications to optical devices. In the past, he has worked and has made significant contribution to areas of adaptive filters theory, acoustic echo cancellation, magnetic/optical recoding, and digital subscriber line technologies. He is the author of the books "Adaptive Filters: theory and applications", John Wiley & Sons, 1998, and “Signal Processing Techniques for Software Radios”, self published at Lulu publishing house, 2009.

Dr. Farhang-Boroujeny received the UNESCO Regional Office of Science and Technology for South and Central Asia Young Scientists Award in 1987. He served as an associate editor of IEEE Trans. on Signal Processing from July 2002 to July 2005, and as an associate editor of IEEE Signal Processing Letters from April 2008 to March 2010. He has also been involved in various IEEE activities, including the chairmanship of the Signal Processing/Communications chapter of IEEE of Utah in 2004 and 2005.
