Erik Ordentlich is a research scientist in the Systems Research Lab in Palo Alto, California. He has been with HP Labs since 1996 with the exception of a period in 1999-2002 when he was with iCompression, Inc. where he developed algorithms and firmware for a high density voice processing chip. At HP Labs, Erik has worked on several projects involving data compression, error correction and constrained coding, denoising, and other branches of information theory. He co-invented the subbitplane technology in the ISO JPEG 2000 image compression standard and actively participated in the standardization process. He is currently working on coding techniques for memristor based memory and storage systems. Erik obtained S.B. and S.M. degrees in Electrical Engineering in 1990 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering in 1996 from Stanford University.
