Yuejie Chi, professor of electrical and computer engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, has been named a 2022 IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) Distinguished Lecturer. The Distinguished Lecturer (DL) Program provides means for SPS Chapters and Student Branch Chapters to have access to well-known educators and authors in the fields of signal processing, to lecture at Chapter meetings.

Chi will serve from January 1, 2022, through December 31, 2023. 

Chi is a Professor in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and a faculty affiliate with the Machine Learning department and CyLab at Carnegie Mellon University. She received her Ph.D. and M.A. from Princeton University, and B. Eng. (Hon.) from Tsinghua University, all in Electrical Engineering. Her research interests lie in the theoretical and algorithmic foundations of data science, signal processing, machine learning and inverse problems, with applications in sensing and societal systems, broadly defined. Among others, Dr. Chi received the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), the inaugural IEEE Signal Processing Society Early Career Technical Achievement Award for contributions to high-dimensional structured signal processing, and held the inaugural Robert E. Doherty Early Career Development Professorship. She was named a Goldsmith Lecturer by IEEE Information Theory Society and a Distinguished Lecturer by IEEE Signal Processing Society.
