– Five new faculty members in Florida Tech’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) will greet students
this spring. New faculty are:
Dr. William W. Arrasmith, adjunct professor, who will teach digital signal processing, received his doctoral degree in physics from the Air Force Institute
of Technology, Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio. He is currently chief for the Advanced Science and Technology Division, Applied Technology Directorate, Air
Force Technical Applications Center, at Patrick Air Force Base, Fla.
Dr. Susan Earles, assistant professor, who will teach control systems and microelectronics laser fabrication laboratory, earned her doctoral degree in
electrical engineering from the University of Florida (UF). Most recently, she was a UF visiting assistant professor of electronic circuits and solid-state
Dr. Ivica N. Kostanic, instructor, who will teach personal communication systems, will earn a doctoral degree in electrical engineering at the University
of Central Florida in June 2003. He was recently a senior research engineer for Agilent Technologies, Inc., a wireless engineering consulting and software
development firm based in Palo Alto, Calif.
Dr. Georgios Anagnostopoulos, assistant professor, who will teach computer hardware design, received his doctoral degree in electrical engineering from the
University of Central Florida. He recently performed research in “adaptive resonance theory for machine learning.”
Dr. Venton Kapuska, associate professor, who will teach digital system design, received his doctoral degree in computer engineering from Clemson
University. He recently was a speech recognition scientist at Think Engine Networks, Inc., in Newton, Mass. In this position, he designed a developed
unique, computer-based, voice recognition solutions for “keyword spotting technology.”
Florida Tech’s fall semester began on Jan. 8.
