EDUCATION

Doctor of Philosophy - Electrical Engineering

  • University of Massachusetts Dartmouth ▪ Dartmouth, MA ▪ 2009 - 2013 (GPA: 3.75) – Dissertation Title : Applications and Extensions of Deterministic Expected Likelihood

 

The dissertation work provided two main contributions. First, it applied concepts of Expected Likelihood (i.e. significance testing) to remedy direction-of-arrival estimation biases associated with basis pursuit-based algorithms. Second, it offered a new algorithm using Expected Likelihood concepts to predict sonar contact maneuvers using array element-level data.

 

Master of Science - Electrical Engineering

  • University of Massachusetts Dartmouth ▪ Dartmouth, MA ▪ 2006 – 200 (GPA: 3.67) - Project Title:  Differential-Phase-Shift-Keyed Signal Processing: An Acoustic Signal Real-Time Implementation

 

The project work offered an implementation and documentation (suitable for complete repdocution of the work) of a real-time acoustic signal processor using DPSK waveforms for time-of-arrival measurements. This signal processor was a core component of the SANS technology developed by MIKEL (see the Skills and Professional Experience page).

 

Bachelor of Science - Electrical Engineering with Physics Minor 

  • University of Massachusetts Dartmouth ▪ Dartmouth, MA ▪ 2000 – 2005 (GPA: 3.64)
