Augusto Sarti - Profile


BS/MS and Ph.D. in electrical and electronics engineering from the University of Padua, Italy, in 1988 and 1993, respectively, with research on nonlinear communication systems. Graduate studies included a joint graduate program with the UC Berkeley, focusing on nonlinear system theory. With the Politecnico di Milano since 1993 (now full professor).

Full professor (adjunct) at UC Davis from 2013 to 2017.

Research interests in the area of digital signal processing, with focus on space-time audio processing, sound analysis, synthesis and processing, image analysis, and 3D vision. Main contributions In the area of sound synthesis (nonlinear wave digital filters); of space-time audio processing (plenacoustic processing, visibility-based interactive acoustic modeling, geometry-based acoustic scene reconstruction; soundfield rendering, etc.); nonlinear system theory (Volterra system inversion, Wave Digital circuit simulation); computer vision; image analysis and processing.

Currently focusing on geometric space-time audio processing methodologies; music information processing; spatial audio processing and more.

Senior Member of IEEE, Senior Area Editor of IEEE Signal Processing Letters, Associate Editor of IEEE Tr. on Audio Speech and Language Processing. Member elect of the IEEE Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing TC and founding member of the European Acoustics Association (EAA) Technical Committee on Audio Signal Processing. Chairman of the EURASIP Special Area Team of Acoustic, Sound and Music Signal Processing. Member elect of the Board of Directors of EURASIP.
