Rowan University Electrical and Computer Engineering student.
Ravi P. Ramachandran received the B. Eng degree (with great distinction) from Concordia University in 1984, the M. Eng degree from McGill University in 1986 and the Ph.D. degree from McGill University in 1990. From October 1990 to December 1992, he worked at the Speech Research Department at AT&T Bell Laboratories. From January 1993 to August 1997, he was a Research Assistant Professor at Rutgers University. He was also a Senior Speech Scientist at T-Netix from July 1996 to August 1997. Since September 1997, he is with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Rowan University where he has been a Professor since September 2006. He has served as a consultant to T-Netix, Avenir Inc., Motorola and Focalcool. From September 2002 to September 2005, he was an Associate Editor for the IEEE Transactions on Speech and Audio Processing and was on the Speech Technical Committee for the IEEE Signal Processing society. Since September 2000, he has been on the Editorial Board of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Magazine. Since May 2002, he has been on the Digital Signal Processing Technical Committee for the IEEE Circuits and Systems society. His research interests are in digital signal processing, speech processing, biometrics, pattern recognition and filter design.
Kevin Dahm is a Professor of Chemical Engineering at Rowan University. He earned his BS from Worcester Polytechnic Institute (92) and his PhD from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (98). He has published two books, "Fundamentals of Chemical Engineering Thermodynamics" and "Interpreting Diffuse Reflectance and Transmittance." He has also published papers on effective use of simulation in engineering, teaching design and engineering economics, and assessment of student learning.
Dr. Nazari is an assistant professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Rowan University. His primary research interests are: application of remote sensing in water technologies and environment, resiliency and water reuse, impact assessment of climate change and extreme weather events on cities. Dr. Nazari is has worked with NASA, NOAA, Consortium on Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast, and New York State Resiliency Institute for Storms & Emergencies teams of active researchers who focus on climate issues affecting the urban corridor encompassing the U.S. Northeast. Dr. Nazari has published several book chapters, journal papers and has presented his work in national and international conferences.
Umashanger Thayasivam an Associate Professor of Statistics from Rowan University. I have expertise in robust estimation with mixture models. My research interests include mixture models, robust estimation and statistical applications in STEM. My interdisciplinary statistical research has spanned diverse areas including statistical data mining, speaker recognition systems, spoof detection, spectrum sensing and network security. I have more than ten journal publications and several conference presentations.
I have been PI/co-PI for several internal and external grants and collaborations, including the ongoing three year collaboration data mining project with Bristol Myers Squibb pharmaceutical company, Rowan University Seed grant for a study of statistical and data mining techniques in the field of network security and computer forensics, as well as College of Science and Mathematics grant for evaluation of data classification techniques. I also am performing Biomarker research aimed at optimizing and verifying the utility of autoantibody biomarkers for early diagnosis-Biomarker Discovery Center at Rowan SOM. Where I ensure that all of the data evaluation strategies and methodologies employed in the studies will take full advantage of any recent developments, improvements and alternative analytical approaches.
