Dr. Schonfeld received the B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley, California, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical and Computer Engineering from The Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, Maryland, in 1986, 1988, and 1990, respectively.

In August 1990, he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Illinois, Chicago, Illinois, where he is currently a Professor in the Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science, and Bioengineering.  He has also served as Director of the University-Industry Engineering Research Center (UIERC), formerly the Manufacturing Research Center (MRC).  He is also Co-Director of the Multimedia Communications Laboratory (MCL) and member of the Signal and Image Research Laboratory (SIRL).

Dr. Schonfeld has been elevated to the rank of Fellow of the IEEE “for contributions to image and video analysis.”  He was also elevated to the rank of Fellow of the SPIE “for specific achievements in morphological image processing and video analysis.”  Dr. Schonfeld has been elected University Scholar of the University of Illinois.

Dr. Schonfeld has authored over 200 technical papers in various journals and conferences.  He was co-author (with Carlo Giulietti and Rashid Ansari) of a paper that won the Best Paper Award at the ACM Multimedia Workshop on Advanced Video Streaming Techniques for Peer-to-Peer Networks and Social Networking 2010.  He was also co-author (with Junlan Yang) of a paper that won the Best Student Paper Award in the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing 2007.  He was also co-author (with Wei Qu) of a paper that won the Best Student Paper Award in the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing 2006.  He was also co-author (with Nidhal Bouaynaya) of a paper that won the Best Student Paper Award in Visual Communication and Image Processing 2006.

Dr. Schonfeld is currently serving as Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology.  He has also served as Deputy Editor-in-Chief of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology and Area Editor for Special Issues of the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine.  He has also served as Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing (on image and video storage, retrieval and analysis), Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology (on video analysis), Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Signal Processing (on multidimensional signal processing and multimedia signal processing), and Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Image Processing (on nonlinear filtering).  He has also served on the editorial board of various journal publications.  He has also served as guest editor for numerous special issues in various journal publications.

Dr. Schonfeld is currently serving as Technical Program Chair of the IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP) 2018.  He has served as General Co-Chair of the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME) 2012.  He has also served as Technical Chair of the IEEE Workshop on Genomic Signal Processing and Statistics (GENSIPS) 2009.  He has also served as Chair of the Workshop on Video Mining 2008.  He has also served as Chair of the SPIE Conference on Visual Communication and Image Processing (VCIP) 2007.  He was a member of the organizing committees of the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP) 1998, 2012, and 2018, IEEE/SPIE International Conference on Visual Communications and Image Processing (VCIP) 2010, and IEEE Workshop on Nonlinear Signal and Image Processing (NSIP) 1997.  He was also organizer of the Thematic Symposium on Multimedia Search and Retrieval at the IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP) 2009.

Dr. Schonfeld was keynote speaker at the International Conference on Intelligent Control and Information Processing (ICICIP) 2013 and International Conference on Brain Inspired Cognitive Systems (BICS) 2013.  He was also plenary speaker at the IEEE/IET International Conference on Audio, Language and Image Processing (ICALIP), Shanghai, China, in 2010.  He was also plenary speaker at the IEEE International Conference on Advanced Video and Signal Based Surveillance (AVSS), Genoa, Italy, in 2009.  He was also plenary speaker at the INPT/ASME International Conference on Communications, Signals, and Systems (ICCSS), Rabat Morocco, in 1995 and 2001.

Dr. Schonfeld has served as Representative of Regions 1-6 in the Chapters Committee of the IEEE Signal Processing Society.  He has also served as Chairman of the Chicago Chapter of the IEEE Signal Processing Society.  He has also served on the IEEE Image, Video, and Multidimensional Signal Processing (IVMSP) Technical Committee, formerly the IEEE Image and Multidimensional Signal Processing (IMDSP) Technical Committee, as well as the IEEE Multimedia Communications Technical Committee.  He also served on the American National Standards Institute (ANSI)/Underwriters Laboratory (UL) Standards Technical Panel (“STP”) on Multimedia Systems.

Dr. Schonfeld has served as President of Multimedia Systems Corporation (MSC) and provided services as a consultant and expert witness for over 60 companies.

His current research interests are in signal processing, image and video analysis, video retrieval and communications, multimedia systems, computer vision, medical imaging, and genomic signal processing.
