Peter Stoica's extensive contributions have impacted virtually every important subject of modern statistical signal processing. He has made seminal contributions to a broad area of theoretical topics. In particular he has been hailed for his pioneering contributions to array processing and direction-of-arrival estimation techniques and to multi-input multi-output radar. His influential scholarly texts, System Identification and Spectral Analysis of Signals, have been used worldwide to educate many generations of students, and his more recent books on wireless communications and sequence design have been invaluable references for researchers in the field. Throughout his life-long career he has also been a leader in bringing innovative signal processing techniques to a wide spectrum of important applications including radar, nuclear magnetic resonance, breast cancer diagnosis, wireless communications, sensor networks, and exo-planet search in astronomy.
An IEEE Fellow, Stoica is a Professor with the IT Dept at Uppsala University in Sweden as well as a Member of the European Academy of Sciences and the US National Academy of Engineering.
