Biographical Sketch

I received a BS (1992) and MS (1993) in Computer Engineering, and a PhD (1996) in Computer Science and Engineering, all from the University of South Florida. During this time my research focused on range image processing and 3D model construction for object recognition and mobile robot navigation. From 1996-1998 I held a post-doctoral position at the University of California, San Diego, in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department. During this time my research focused on retinal image processing, and sensor network control of mobile robots. In 1999 I joined the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of Clemson University, where I am currently a Professor. My current research focuses on tracking systems. Tracking can refer to physical problems, such as locating where things are in the world, and also signal problems, such as identifying the relative health of an individual's blood pressure over time. Image and signal processing, mHealth, state space modeling, filtering, and embedded computing form the background of my work. My group works with many types of sensors, and often builds embedded systems that prototype novel tracking ideas. I am currently an Associate Editor for the IEEE Journal of Biomedical and Health Informatics.
