Dr. Mohammad Saleh Keshawarz Dr. Mohammad Saleh Keshawarz is Professor and former Chair of the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department, Dr. Keshawarz has conducted extensive research in the study and analysis of microstructure of stabilized soil and concrete. He has use scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive spectroscopy (EDS), and X-ray diffraction techniques in the identification of reaction products of stabilized soils concrete. His research on the microstructure has led to the publication of several research well regarded articles.
Dr. Hemchandra Shertukde Dr. Hemchandra Shertukde is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He is a recognized expert in signal and image processing. He has also extensively worked in the area of multi-target multi-sensor tracking using infrared sensors and probabilistic data association techniques. The technique is augmented by the use of a
Dr. Abby Ilumoka Dr. Abby Ilumoka is a professor of electrical and computer engineering at University of Hartford where she has taught since 1992. Her research interests are microelectronic circuit optimization, tunable microwave filter synthesis and complex adaptive systems design. She is an expert in “Fuzzy Logic” which allows computers to make human like decisions from incomplete and approximate information that will be found often in manufacturing metrology. As one of the state’s most distinguished engineers, she was inducted in May 2011 into the Connecticut Academy of Science and Engineering (CASE) an institution that provides science and technology advice to government agencies and the Connecticut General Assembly.
Dr. Hisham Alnajjar Dr. Hisham Alnajjar is Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Associate Dean of the College. He has worked extensively in signal and image processing including character recognition. His research interests include sensor array processing, digital signal processing theory and real-time applications, power systems in addition to engineering education. These will be important for defect identification on manufactured items.
