C'est moi.


Jonathan T. Foote was born in 1963 in Hollywood. He attended public schools in Santa Monica, California, somehow without learning how to surf. He received a BS (Electrical Engineering) degree in 1985 and a ME (Electrical) degree in 1986, both from Cornell University. From 1986 to 1988 he worked as a development engineer for Teradyne, Inc. in Boston, Massachusetts. In 1993 he received a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Brown University, where he also received a Brown Presidential Teaching Award and an Outstanding Research Award from the Brown University Chapter of Sigma Xi. He did postdoctoral research at Cambridge University in the United Kingdom from 1993 to 1996, and was a 1997 Fulbright Fellow at the Institute of Systems Science (now A*STAR) in Singapore. From 1997 to 2005 he was a Senior Research Scientist at FX Palo Alto Laboratory, Inc. Currently he is a freelance consultant, as well as working on a manuscript and several speculative projects.

Dr. Foote has published more than 60 papers in these areas and has received Best Paper Awards at the ACM Multimedia and ACM SIGIR international conferences.
