Brief description of main areas of professional/scholarly activity (technical and research interests, offices held in professional and technical organizations, participation on technical standards development committees, etc.).




My lab is conducting research into quantifying shape and form of anatomical objects from medical images such as MR/CT/US. We are developing novel tools for diffeomorphic mapping of anatomical shapes and doing statistical analysis on shapes to develop biomarkers for discrimination between “normal” and “diseased” configurations. We are also developing tools for processing of diffusion tensor MR imaging for quantifying orientation of brain white matter or cardiac fiber pathways. Particular applications have been into cardiac shape and fiber orientation analysis, Alzheimer’s, stroke and Huntington’s disease in the brain and developing tools for enhanced accuracy in locating functional activation in medial temporal lobe (declarative memory), striatum (procedural memory) and linguistics and peripheral nerve shape quantification in normal and hemiplegic patients.

Brief description of main areas of professional/scholarly activity (technical and research interests, offices held in professional and technical organizations, participation on technical standards development committees, etc.).




Keyword(s): 3D imaging sonar, interfermetric sonar, angle estimation,underwater acoustic transducers, underwater acoustics, bottomclassification, swimmer detection, port and harbor security.

Brief Description: This research is dedicated to determining the practical limits of high frequency sonar techniques for underwater acoustic imaging, bottom classification and the detection of low-Doppler targets. The research involves solving problems in five related areas: underwater acoustic transducer design and fabrication, real-time signal processing, electronics design, mechanical design, and data presentation.
Keyword(s): Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUV’s), underwater surveys, bottom surveys, water column surveys.

Brief Description: This research is dedicated to researching the sensor/AUV combination as a tool for underwater surveys specifically in bodies of fresh water. It is hoped that AUV platforms will reduce the cost of such surveys and provide better data sets for modeling the dynamics of small bodies of fresh water that are critical sources of clean drinking water.
Keyword(s): Microbialites, Stromatolites, Ancient Seabeds, Pavilion Lake.

Brief Description: This research is dedicated to determining the origin of microbialite structures in Pavilion Lake. These structures are of interest because of their uniqueness and the possibility that they might serve as modern day analogs for ancient dendritic reef structures.
