A defining characteristic of our department is the high level of cross-discipline collaboration seen among the various groups of researchers. For example, there is a strong program bringing together experts in the areas of computer hardware design and signal processing to build the next generation of real time embedded processing systems. We have an extensive program in the area of subsurface sensing and imaging for problems ranging from environmental monitoring to undersea exploration and medical imaging and cellular imaging and diagnosis. This effort involves researchers whose strengths lie in sensor design, computational modeling, signal and image processing, software engineering and database design and management
These and similar effort result in highly interesting, broadly based thesis work by our graduate students. Please look around and feel free to contact any of the faculty and staff who might help answer questions you may have. It is an exciting time here at NU and we invite you to join our team.
