Michael Robinson

Assistant Professor Department of Mathematics and Statistics

I am interested in signal processing, dynamics, and applications of topology. I have worked on projects involving radio propagation and network planning, bistatic radar processing, and advanced radar simulation. For my dissertation, I developed topological methods for studying the dynamics of parabolic equations. My more recent efforts follow an emerging trend of topologically-motivated signal processing techniques. My current projects involve topological approaches to tracking, communication network analysis, sonar target recognition, and data fusion.
