Marcelo J. Weinberger
Manager, Information Theory Research Group

Marcelo J. Weinberger received the Electrical Engineer degree from the Universidad de la República, Montevideo, Uruguay, in 1983, and the M.Sc. and D.Sc. degrees from Technion—Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa, Israel, in 1987 and 1991, respectively, both in electrical engineering.

From 1985 to 1992 he was with the Department of Electrical Engineering at Technion, joining the faculty for the 1991–1992 academic year. During 1992–1993 he was a Visiting Scientist at IBM Almaden Research Center, San Jose, California. Since 1993 he has been with Hewlett–Packard Laboratories, Palo Alto, California, where he is a Distinguished Technologist and manages the Information Theory Research group. In this role, Dr. Weinberger defines the research direction of the group, which has transferred error-correction and data compression technology to HP's imaging, storage, and computing businesses. Dr. Weinberger is also a honorary professor at Universidad de la República, Montevideo, Uruguay.

Dr. Weinberger's research has focused on universal statistical modeling and its applications to problems in information theory and computation, particularly data compression. His contributions span from the mathematical foundations to the definition of international standards based on the algorithms he proposed. In particular, he is a co-author of the algorithm at the core of the JPEG-LS lossless image compression international standard, and was an editor of the standard specification. He also contributed to the coding algorithm of the JPEG2000 image compression standard. He is a co-recipient of the 2006 IEEE Communications/Information Theory Societies Joint Paper Award for the paper "Universal Discrete Denoiser: Known Channel," published in the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory in January 2005, which presents the DUDE algorithm.

Dr. Weinberger is a Fellow of the IEEE. He served as an Associate Editor for Source Coding of the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory from 1999 to 2002, and has been in the Technical Program Committee (TPC) of multiple conferences, co-chairing the TPC of the 2006 IEEE Information Theory Workshop.
