Markus Rupp (IEEE Fellow) received his Dipl.-Ing. degree in 1988 at the University of Saarbruecken, Germany and his Dr.-Ing. degree in 1993 at the Technische Universitaet Darmstadt, Germany, here he worked with Eberhardt Haensler on designing new algorithms for acoustical and electrical echo compensation.

From November 1993 until July 1995, he had a postdoctoral position at the University of Santa Barbara, California with Sanjit Mitra where he worked with Ali H.Sayed on a robustness description of adaptive filters with impact on neural networks and active noise control. From October 1995 until August 2001 he was a member of Technical Staff in the Wireless Technology Research Department of Bell-Labs at Crawford Hill, NJ, where he worked on various topics related to adaptive equalization and rapid implementation for IS-136, 802.11 and UMTS, including the first MIMO prototype for UMTS as well as the first WiFi prototypes.

Since October 2001 he is a full professor for Digital Signal Processing in Mobile Communications at the Vienna University of Technology where he founded the Christian-Doppler Laboratory for Design Methodology of Signal Processing Algorithms in 2002 at the Institute for Communications and RF Engineering (now Institute of Telecommunications). He served as Dean from 2005-2007 and as Head of Institute from 2014-2015.

He was associate editor of IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing from 2002-2005, is currently associate editor of JASP EURASIP Journal of Advances in Signal Processing and JES EURASIP Journal on Embedded Systems.
He was elected AdCom member of EURASIP from 2004-2012 and served as president of EURASIP from 2009-2010.

He authored and co-authored more than 450 scientific papers and patents on adaptive filtering, wireless communications, and rapid prototyping, as well as automatic design methods.
