I appeared about at the same time as the White Album and, upon being born, I immediately took the one and only sabbatical of my life, which lasted a leisurely four years. I then proceeded to be pre-schooled, schooled, middle- and high-schooled, college educated, and finally grad-schooled here at EPFL. As a kid I was fascinated by those expensive long-distance phone calls and so I specialized in communication systems. And then I did this and I did that. But do we really want to go into details? I thought so.
In 2006 I co-founded Quividi, an automated audience measurement company that provides real-time attention analytics to helps media owners, retailers, and brands finely count, qualify and engage their audiences. I am still the CSO of the company.
Together with Mike Gubser, I wrote a musical that was performed on (actually, off) Broadway in 2015. That was fun!

Book in Open Access
With Martin Vetterli, I wrote the book Signal Processing for Communications (EPFL Press, 2008). In 2010, we decided to release the book in Open Access and you can download your camera-ready PDF copy here!
