- I held the Demetrius T. Paris Junior Professorship, a special chair for the development of young faculty, from 2004-2007.
- Postdoctoral Research Associate (Aug. 1998 to Aug. 2001)
Visiting Assistant Professor (Aug. 2000 to Aug. 2002)
Univ. of Illinois at Urbana Champaign
Coordinated Science Laboratory
Project: Design and Optimization of Passive and Active Imaging Radar, focusing on detection, tracking, imaging, and identification of aircraft via reflected commercial television and FM radio signals.
Faculty: Richard Blahut, Yoram Bresler, Weng Chew, Pierre Moulin, David Munson
- My wife and I sang in the Dekalb Choral Guild from Fall 2002 to Fall 2007.
- Night Times was a St. Louis based music magazine which I was involved with for three years as a writer, photographer, typesetter, and eventually managing editor. The printed version I was involved with closed up shop in 1998, but founding editor Julia Gordon has brought it back in an on-line version.
Overall Interests: Statistical signal processing, Grenander’s pattern theory
Applied Research: Radar systems, target tracking, image reconstruction, automatic target recognition
Other Interests: Music synthesis, information theory, radio astronomy, crystallography
Education (Washington Univ. in St. Louis)
I worked in the Electronic Systems and Signals Research Laboratory. My graduate work focused on applying Grenander’s pattern theory to automatic target recognition in infrared scenes. Most of this work was funded by the U.S. Army Center for Imaging Science.
