Summary:  My research work has contributed to the general area of signal processing systems with applications in medical imaging, biomedical signal analysis, non-destructive evaluation, radar detection, and audio sensor networks with over $4 million of funding in these areas and over 100 technical publications.  I have taught classes at the graduate and undergraduate level, and developed undergraduate courses in signal processing.  Current research interests include distributed audio systems, acoustic/auditory scene analysis, statistical signal processing, and biomedical signals analysis.  I served the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department in an administrative capacity; 3.5 years as Interim Department Chair, and 8.5 years as Director of Undergraduate Studies.  I have consulted with industry for the design and evaluation of signal processing and automated classification systems primarily related to ultrasonic and acoustic applications.  I co-founded Signal Solutions, LLC based on technology developed to track sleep and wake behaviors in mice useful for high-throughput genetic studies. We currently have several active installations in the USA and in Europe.
