He taught at Columbia University as an assistant professor and then associate professor. He was subsequently named full professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley, before returning to EPFL to head the Audiovisual Communications Laboratory (LCAV). Professor Vetterli’s work on the theory of wavelets, which are used in signal processing, is considered to be of major importance by his peers. Professor Vetterli knows EPFL inside and out. An EPFL graduate himself, he has been teaching at the school since 1995. He was Vice President for International Affairs and then Institutional Affairs from 2004 to 2011, and served as dean of the School of Computer and Communication Sciences in 2011 and 2012.
