selected publications


courses taught

  • ASEN 3300 - Aerospace Electronics and Communications
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    Provides the fundamentals of electronics and communications widely used in aerospace engineering. Includes analog instrumentation electronics, data acquisition, digital electronics and radio communication. Offered spring only.
  • ASEN 5210 - Remote Sensing Seminar
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Covers subjects pertinent to remote sensing of the Earth, including oceanography, meteorology, vegetation monitoring, and geology. Emphasizes techniques for extracting geophysical information from satellite data. Course requirement for Remote Sensing Certificate. Formerly ASEN 6210.
  • ASEN 6090 - Advanced Global Navigation Satellite Systems: Software and Applications
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Focuses on high-precision applications of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and the software tools that are needed to achieve these precisions. Topics include precise orbital determination, reference frames, atmospheric delays, relativity, clock models, ambiguity resolution, and scientific applications. Recommended prerequisite: ASEN 5090 or instructor consent required.
  • ASEN 6091 - Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) Receiver Architecture
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Investigates the overall architecture of satellite navigation receivers: including both the analog radio frequency conditioning (antenna to the analog-to-digital converter) and the various signal processing algorithms. Such treatment of the operation of the receiver will provide insight into the trade-offs that go into GNSS as well as the more broad generic spread spectrum receiver design. Recommended prerequisite: ASEN 5090.
  • ASEN 6519 - Special Topics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Reflects upon specialized aspects of aerospace engineering sciences. Course content is indicated in the online Schedule Planner. May be repeated up to 9 total credit hours. Recommended prerequisite: varies.
  • ATOC 7500 - Special Topics in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Acquaints students with current research in atmospheres, oceans, and climate. Topics may vary each semester. May be repeated up to 9 total credit hours. Students may register for more than one section of this course in the same semester.
