Michael L. Honig received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 1977, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1978 and 1981, respectively. He subsequently joined Bell Laboratories in Holmdel, NJ, where he worked on local area networks and voiceband data transmission. In 1983 he joined the Systems Principles Research Division at Bellcore, where he worked on Digital Subscriber Lines and wireless communications. Since the Fall of 1994, he has been with Northwestern University where he is a Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. He was a visiting lecturer at Princeton University during the Fall of 1993, a visiting Mackay Professor at the University of California, Berkeley for Fall 2000, and a visiting scholar at the University of Sydney during the summer of 2001. He has also worked as a free-lance trombonist.

Dr. Honig has served as an editor for the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory (1998-2000) and the IEEE Transactions on Communications (1990-1995), and was a guest editor for the European Transactions on Telecommunications and Wireless Personal Communications. He has also served as a member of the Digital Signal Processing Technical Committee for the IEEE Signal Processing Society, and as a member of the Board of Governors for the Information Theory Society (1997-2002). He is the co-recipient of the 2002 IEEE Communications Society and Information Theory Society Joint Paper Award, and is a Fellow of IEEE.
