Current Classes

Since I will be on sabbatical leave during Fall 2015 and Spring 2016, I will not be teaching classes.

Classes Taught Recently

I've taught 30+ different classes at the University of New Mexico, New Mexico Tech and the University of Idaho. Most in the areas of signals and systems or computer engineering.

Some Background

Work Experience

  • U.S. Navy, Radioman, 1968-71. U.S.S. White Plains, AFS-4. Vietnam & Western Pacific.

Current Professional Interests

  • Digital Image Processing
  • Image Analysis
  • Pattern Recognition
  • Real Time and Embedded Computing
  • Computer Science Education

Professional Areas I've Worked In

Digital signal and image processing. Machine Vision for security monitoring, robot control, scientific and medical image analysis. Real-time embedded systems for signal and image processing. Reconfigurable and low-power platforms. ASIC design, FGPA and microprocessor-based systems (VHDL, Verilog). Some reasonably large software projects in C++ and Java, using Object Oriented Programming methods.

Current Professional Activity

In the last few years I've shifted from hands-on research to university administration and project management. I like to work with others to make good things happen. On sabbatical, I will explore research areas and update my skills. Currently looking at Unmanned Aerial Systems (drones) for environmental applications such as wildland fire management, and precision agriculture. I'm particularly interested in how to exploit the data this is becoming available in huge quantities from these affordable and flexible remote sensing platforms.

Past Research Projects

Quote of the Year

"Il semble que la perfection soit atteinte non quand il n'y a plus rien à ajouter, mais quand il n'y à plus rien à retrancher."

"It seems that perfection is reached, not when there is nothing else to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
