Florham Park, NJ
Subject matter expert in image and video quality estimation, and video transport over networks

Amy R. Reibman is a Lead Member of Technical Staff at AT&T Labs -- Research.  She received the B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Duke University in 1983, 1984, and 1987, respectively. From 1988 to 1991, she was an assistant professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering at Princeton University. In 1991 she joined AT&T Bell Laboratories, and became a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff in 1995. She is currently a Lead Member of Technical Staff in the Communication Sciences and Artificial Intelligence Research Department at AT&T Laboratories.

Dr. Reibman was elected IEEE Fellow in 2005, for her contributions to video transport over networks. In 1998, she won the IEEE Communications Society Leonard G.  Abraham Prize Paper Award.  She was the Technical co-chair of the IEEE International Conference on Image Processing in 2002; the Technical Co-chair for the First IEEE Workshop on Multimedia Signal Processing in 1997; the Technical Chair for the Sixth International Workshop on Packet Video in 1994.  She is currently technical co-chair for the Second International Workshop on Quality of Multimedia Experience, 2010.  She was a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Signal Processing Society from 2008-2009.

Dr. Reibman's research interests include video compression systems for transport over packet and wireless networks, video quality estimation, superresolution image and video enhancement, and 3-D and multiview video.

Dr. Reibman's current goal is to improve overall system performance by integrating accurate video quality estimators into real systems.
