Dr. Warren Rosen received his Ph.D. in physics from Temple University. Following graduation he served as assistant professor of physics at Colby and Vassar Colleges where he carried out research in optical physics, solar physics, and medical physics. During this time he was a visiting scientist at Kitt Peak National Observatory and a research scientist at Atmospheric and Environmental Research in Cambridge, MA. He then moved to the Naval Air Warfare Center, Aircraft Division in Warminster, PA where he established an optical communications laboratory for development and characterization of optical components, systems, and protocols for high-performance avionics data networks. Dr. Rosen is currently an assistant clinical professor at Drexel University, where he is responsible for developing and teaching courses in microprocessors, microcontrollers, FPGAs, and optics. Dr. Rosen has carried out research sponsored by the National Security Agency, National Science Foundation, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, DARPA, the Office of Naval Research, Air Force Office of Scientific Research, and the Missile Defense Agency. Dr. Rosen is the author or coauthor of over 80 publications and conference proceedings and the holder of six U.S. patents in computer networking and signal processing.
