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.Currently looking at Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), also known as Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) or 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
"Music shakes the dust of everyday life off your shoes." - Sonny Rollins
Now into jazz, swing, and world/fusion.
- Play bass with the Hog Heaven Big Band
- Play bass and sing with Gefiltetrout, a Klezmer/Gypsy/Eastern European folk dance band.
Enjoy motorcycle riding, especially back roads and mild off road. I have a BMW F700GS, and a Zero FXS Supermoto electric motorcycle which is my daily commuter. It's tons of fun, and zero emissions.
My wife Mary teaches music at Moscow Charter School, and is active in Zimbabwe Marimba groups. She leads marimba club for children and adults, and teaches marimba workshops periodically in Beaverton, OR.
Son James Donohoe is an emergency room nurse in Portland, OR.
Son Brian Donohoe is a jazz musician in New York City.
