John H.L. Hansen (born November 17, 1959 in Plainfield, NJ) is Department Head and Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering (EE), Erik Jonsson School of Engineering & Computer Science, The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD). He is also the University Distinguished Chair in Telecommunications Engineering, and holds a joint appointment as Professor in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences.[1]

He started his academic career as Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering and Department of Biomedical Engineering, Pratt School of Engineering, Duke University, in 1988, where he established the Robust Speech Processing Laboratory, (RSPL)[2] and worked closely with the Duke Medical Center and corporations in Research Triangle Park, NC. In 1999, he moved to The University of Colorado at Boulder (CU-Boulder), where he served as Department Chairman and Professor in the Department of Speech, Language & Hearing Sciences,[3] and held a joint appointment as Professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering. While at CU-Boulder, he co-founded the Center for Speech and Language Research (CSLR),[4] where he served as Associate Director from 1999-2003. In 2005, he was named Head of the EE Department at UTD,[5] a position he has held ever since. At UTD, he established the Center for Robust Speech Systems (CRSS),[6] which is focused on interdisciplinary research in speech processing, hearing sciences, and language technologies.
