Sabbath School for a New Generation

Among Seventh Day Adventists, Sabbath School is a time for discussion and learning. It is the belief of this site that Sabbath School should be an exciting venue for the discussion of new ideas, instead of rehashing old arguments. So welcome to a virtual Sabbath School, a Sabbath School for a new generation.

Dissertation Defense

I will be defending my dissertation on Thursday at 10:00 am. So all of my work comes down to this one little hour. I feel confident but a little nervous. My research has looked at how to robustly (few errors) find the locations of acoustical sources (people talking) using a bunch of microphones. The algorithm that I developed can find the locations of two people who are talking at the same time, even if one person is talking softer than the other. The problem is called source localization and the math involved is very similar to the math used for RADAR, SONAR, and medical imaging applications.
