Profiles

Michael T. Johnson, Ph.D.

 

Dr. Johnson is an Assistant Professor at Marquette. His current research interests include speech recognition, signal processing, natural language processing, machine learning, and bioacoustics. Courses he has taught recently include Digital Signal Processing, Speech Processing, Adaptive and Optimal Signal Processing, Information Theory, and Computer Hardware. Dr. Johnson holds a Ph.D. from Purdue University in the area of Electrical and Computer Engineering, as well as a Master's degree in Electrical Engineering and Bachelor's degrees in Computer Science Engineering and Electrical Engineering. His Ph.D. research at Purdue focused on utilizing language models and prosody to improve speech recognition accuracy. In addition, he has significant engineering experience in industry in hardware design as well as engineering management.



Richard J. Povinelli, Ph.D.

 

Dr. Povinelli owns a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering as well as a bachelor of arts in psychology. He also holds a master of science in computer systems and engineering and a Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering. His industrial experience comes primarily from GE Medical Systems, where he was a global project leader. At Marquette he has taught classes on topics such as computer hardware and software, as well as time series data mining and artificial intelligence among others. His research interests include time series data mining, computational intelligence, financial engineering, evolutionary algorithms, and more.
