Bloch joined the ECE faculty in 2009, a year after earning his Ph.D. in electrical engineering from Georgia Tech. He was initially based at Georgia Tech-Europe in Metz, France, before moving to the Atlanta campus in 2013.

Bloch’s research focuses on classical and quantum information theory, error-control coding, wireless communications, and cryptography.

Bloch has devoted much time and effort to enhancing education for ECE’s undergraduate and graduate students. He developed flipped course material for ECE 3084, Signals and Systems, in 2017. For the past five years, he has advised the Agile Communication Architecture team in the Vertically Integrated Projects program. This group of students is developing the next generation of intelligent radios and exploring opportunities at the convergence of machine learning and software-defined radios.

Bloch has served on organizing committees of several international conferences and was chair of the Online Committee of the IEEE Information Theory Society from 2011 to 2014. He was an associate editor for the IEEE Transactions on Information Theory from 2016 to 2019 and again since 2021. Bloch has also been on the Board of Governors of the IEEE Information Theory Society since 2016, serving as president last year.
