Lab Director (or Principal Investigator)

Yoshinobu Kajikawa received the B.Eng. and M.Eng. degrees in electrical engineering from Kansai University, Osaka, Japan, and the D.E. degree in communication engineering from Osaka University in 1991, 1993, and 1997, respectively. He joined Fujitsu Ltd., Kawasaki, Japan, in 1993 and engaged in research on active noise control. In 1994, he joined Kansai University, where he is now a Professor. His current research interests lie in the area of signal processing for acoustic and communication systems.He is a senior member of the IEICE and IEEE, and a member of the EURASIP, APSIPA, INCEJ, ASJ, and ASA. He served as an associate editor for the Transactions of the IEICE on Fundamentals of Electronics, Communications and Computer Sciences from 2006 to 2009 and the secretary of IEEE Signal Processing Society Japan Chapter from 2009 to 2010. He is currently serving as an associate editor for the Journal of the ASJ, the chair of the Student Activity Committee of IEEE Kansai Section, the chair of the TC on Active Control of the INCEJ, and a vice chair of the TC on Signal Processing of the IEICE. He is the author or co-author of more than 150 articles in journals and conference proceedings and has been responsible for 5 patents. He received the 1997 Academic Encouragement Award from the IEICE, the 2002 Awaya Kiyoshi Academic Encouragement Award from the ASJ, and the 2012 Sato Prize Paper Award from the ASJ.
