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
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
Electrical and Computer Engineering Department of
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.
