I am an associate professor at Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE). I teach in and am the director of the computer engineering program. I also have the honor of advising two of MSOE's great student organizations, SCOE Robotics and the Photography Club.
During the summers I am a DSP Research Engineer at Starkey Hearing Technologies in Eden Prairie, MN and Berkeley, CA. My research includes using genetic algorithms to efficiently fit audio processing parameters in hearing aids (US patent 7650004), robust perceptual rank inferencing (US patent 8359283), beamforming, and convex optimization. At Johnson Controls (19961998), I worked on Internet technologies, GIS, and building control interfaces.
I earned bachelor's degrees in electrical engineering and computer engineering from MSOE. I earned my master's degree and PhD in electrical engineering from the University of Michigan and the Executive Master in Business Administration (MBA) at the University of WisconsinMilwaukee.
I am a senior member of the IEEE (S'93 M'02 SM'06)
and a member of
the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) (M'02).
