The “Excellence in Teaching Award” is given annually on several campuses by Northrop Grumman. The award honors faculty members who demonstrate a commitment to high teaching standards.

Michael Liebling is an Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB). He received the MS in Physics (2000) and PhD in image processing (2004) from EPFL, Switzerland. From 2004 to 2007, he was a Postdoctoral Scholar in Biology at the California Institute of Technology, before joining the faculty in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at UCSB in 2007.

Research in his lab focuses on biological microscopy and image processing for the study of dynamic biological processes and, more generally, computational methods for optical imaging.

He teaches both at the graduate and undergraduate level in the areas of signal processing, image processing and biological microscopy. Courses Liebling instructs include:

Undergraduate Level:

  • Signal Analysis and Processing (ECE 130A)
  • Applications of Signal Analysis and Processing (ECE 148)
  • Digital Signal Processing (ECE 158)
  • Introduction to Digital Image and Video Processing (ECE 178)

Graduate Level:

  • Multirate Digital Signal Processing – aka Wavelets (ECE 258B)
  • Principles of Biological Microscopy (ECE 278B)
  • Computational Bio-Microscopy (ECE 594Q)
