Joshua Rapp has won the 2021 Best PhD Dissertation Award from the IEEE Signal Processing Society.
The award recognizes a PhD thesis completed on a signal processing subject within the past three years for its relevant work in signal processing while stimulating further research in the field.
Dr. Rapp completed his PhD at Boston University in 2020 with a thesis entitled "Probabilistic Modeling for Single-Photon Lidar." The dissertation tackles challenges of the acquisition and processing of 3D depth maps reconstructed from time-of-flight data captured one photon at a time.
The award will be presented at the 2022 IEEE International Conference on Image Processing (ICIP) in France.
