Yonina C. Eldar received the B.Sc. degree in Physics in 1995 and the B.Sc. degree in Electrical Engineering in 1996 both from Tel-Aviv University (TAU), Tel-Aviv, Israel, and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 2002 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Cambridge.
From January 2002 to July 2002 she was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Digital Signal Processing Group at MIT. She is currently a Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel. She is also a Research Affiliate with the Research Laboratory of Electronics at MIT and a Visiting Professor at Stanford University, Stanford, CA.
Dr. Eldar was in the program for outstanding students at TAU from 1992 to 1996. In 1998, she held the Rosenblith Fellowship for study in electrical engineering at MIT, and in 2000, she held an IBM Research Fellowship. From 2002 to 2005, she was a Horev Fellow of the Leaders in Science and Technology program at the Technion and an Alon Fellow. In 2004, she was awarded the Wolf Foundation Krill Prize for Excellence in Scientific Research, in 2005 the Andre and Bella Meyer Lectureship, in 2007 the Henry Taub Prize for Excellence in Research, in 2008 the Hershel Rich Innovation Award, the Award for Women with Distinguished Contributions, the Muriel & David Jacknow Award for Excellence in Teaching, and the Technion Outstanding Lecture Award, in 2009 the Technion's Award for Excellence in Teaching, in 2010 the Michael
Bruno Memorial Award from the Rothschild Foundation, and in 2011 the Weizmann Prize for Exact Sciences. In 2012 she was elected to the Young Israel Academy of Science and to the Israel Committee for Higher Education, and elected an IEEE Fellow. In 2013 she received the Edwards Chair in Engineering, Technion's Award for Excellence in Teaching, the Hershel Rich Innovation Award, the IEEE Signal Processing Society Technical Achievement Award, and in 2014 the IEEE/AESS Fred Nathanson Memorial Radar Award. She received several best paper awards together with her research students and colleagues. She is the Editor in Chief of Foundations and Trends in Signal Processing and a member of the IEEE Sensor Array and Multichannel Technical Committee.
In the past, she was a Signal Processing Society Distinguished Lecturer, member of the IEEE Signal Processing Theory and Methods and Bio Imaging Signal Processing technical committees, and served as an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions On Signal Processing, the EURASIP Journal of Signal Processing, the SIAM Journal on Matrix Analysis and Applications, and the SIAM Journal on Imaging Sciences.
