Fields of Interest:

I received my education in Electrical Engineering from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, U.S.A. (B.S.E.) and the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada (M.A.Sc., Ph.D.).  I joined the University of Windsor in 1968 and presently hold the rank of Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering.  I am a member of both the Signals and Systems Group and the VLSI Research Group.    I have carried out extensive contract research and technology transfer as part of a collaborative partnership with the private sector.

I am also currently the a member of the board of the Canadian Microelectronics Corporation (CMC).  The CMC is a not-for-profit organization established in 1984 to provide industrial microelectronic technologies to Canadian universities, both to facilitate world-class research and to ensure a strong source of well-trained graduates.  CMC is supported by contributions of technology, services and cash from industry and by matching funding from the federal Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council.  CMC's membership now includes 36 universities and 20 industrial organizations, each selecting a member representative who acts as the main liaison with CMC.

I have a long term interest in digital signal processing (DSP) and applied time series analysis.  I am currently investigating DSP algorithms for hearing instruments.  I am also interested in the design and implementation of intelligent sensors that employ neural network architectures and their VLSI implementation.  The sensors may contain either photonic and/or microelectromechanical structures.

I have published over 200 research papers in refereed journals and conference proceedings in association with my graduate students and research colleagues.

I am a charter member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and a registered professional engineer in the Province of Ontario.
