Sérgio Jesus (M’09) received the “Doctorates-Sciences” degree in engineering sciences from the University of Nice, Nice, France, in 1986. From 1985 to 1992, he was a Staff Scientist at the SACLANT Undersea Research Centre [NURC, currently Center for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE)], La Spezia, Italy. During that period, he was involved with underwater acoustic field noise directionality and early studies on target detection using matched field processing. In 1992, he joined the Electronics and Computation Department, University of Algarve, Faro, Portugal, where he is currently Full Professor. His interests are underwater acoustic array signal processing, model-based inversion, underwater communications, as well as other aspects dealing with sound propagation in the ocean, including its usage for environmental and biodiversity monitoring and conservation. Prof. Jesus is a member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society, the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP), and the Acoustical Society of America.
