Dr. John Hansen, professor of electrical engineering at The University of Texas at Dallas, will be honored with the 2021 Leo L. Beranek Meritorious Service Award from the IEEE Signal Processing Society for his service and leadership in the professional organization.

The IEEE will honor Hansen at its 2022 International Conference on Acoustics, Speech and Signal Processing (ICASSP), scheduled in May in Singapore.

Hansen is associate dean for research, founder and director of the Center for Robust Speech Systems, and Distinguished Chair in Telecommunications in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science.

His research interests include digital speech processing, speaker trait assessment, speech and speaker recognition, and human-computer interaction. He has served on IEEE committees and as a journal editor, and he co-organized the ICASSP in Dallas in 2010.

“IEEE service takes on many forms. And while serving as associate editor on journals, organizing conferences and supporting fellow nominations are all part of it, my greatest reward is seeing students benefit from attending IEEE events, including the 78 UT Dallas students we had as volunteers for IEEE ICASSP in Dallas,” Hansen said.
