Professor and Director of Graduate Studies
PhD, Electrical Engineering Pennsylvania State University
Office Location: ES-2315
Research/Teaching Focus: Emitter Location, Estimation Theory, Data Compression, Sensor Networks, Electronic Warfare Systems
Dr. Fowler has over 17 years experience in signal processing algorithm development, with 8 of those spent in industry as an algorithm development engineer (1991 - 1999) and the remainder in academia at Binghamton University (State University of New York), where he is the director of the Emitter Location Research Group. He has extensive background in algorithm development for both single-platform location methods and multiple-platform location methods. In particular, he has made contributions in the areas of data compression for TDOA/FDOA location, task-driven location optimization of location systems via sensor selection and trajectory adjustment, mitigation of multipath in TDOA location, use of MEMS accelerometers to reduce impact of antenna vibration in location systems, excision of co-channel interference during computation of the cross-ambiguity function, exploitation of digital terrain data for location, design of digital receivers for signal interception, and extensive location performance prediction analysis. He has published over 45 research papers in journals and conference proceedings and has six patents.
One of Professor Fowler's hobbies is playing the guitar and for the first time, his music is part of a CD.
