Martin Vetterli (October 4, 1957 - ) is a Swiss engineer who has made research contributions in the general area of Digital Signal Processing (DSP). He is known for his work on Wavelets and has contributed to other areas, including sampling, computational complexity, signal processing for communications, digital video processing and joint source/channel coding. His work has led to over 80 journal publications and 7 patents.
He was educated at ETH Zürich, Switzerland (Dipl. El.-Ing., 1981), Stanford University (MS, 1982) and École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland (Doctorat ès Sciences, 1986). He has taught at Columbia University, the University of California at Berkeley, and is currently a Professor of Communication Systems at EPFL. He is a co-author of the book Wavelets and Subband Coding (Prentice-Hall, 1995).
In 1995, Vetterli was elected Fellow of the IEEE "for contributions to the theory and practice of subband coding and wavelets". He is the recipient of several best paper awards, in addition to the Swiss National Latsis Prize (1996), the SPIE Presidential award (1999), and the IEEE Signal Processing Technical Achievement Award (2001). He is a former member of the Swiss Council on Science and Technology. He is a Fellow of the Association for Computing Machinery (2009).
In 2008 Vetterli authored with Paolo Prandoni a free textbook Signal Processing for Communications.
