Electrical and Computer Engineering

I was proud to be named an IEEE Fellow and to be awarded the Robert W. Wieseman Chair in Electrical Engineering. I am currently a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the ECE department of Lehigh University.

My teaching assignments include Signals and Systems, Communication Theory, Statistical Signal Processing, Digital Signal Processing. Information Theory, and Signal Detection and Estimation.

My research interests are in the general area of signal processing and communications, with some emphasis on using multiple antennas and sensors. Current research is on using antenna arrays in wireless communications and on image fusion. Another particular area of interest is distributed signal detection and filtering, where observations at remotely located sensors are compressed or truncated before they are transmitted to a central area for processing. Schemes for fusing information from diverse sources are also of interest.

I am always looking for bright students interested in working on my projects.
