ECE grad student Kerry Dungan receives Best Student Paper Award at Conference
Kerry Dungan, a graduate student in electrical and computer engineering, received the best student paper award at SPIE Algorithms for Synthetic Aperture Radar Imagery XVII Conference in April 2010. Dungan’s paper, Classifying Sets of Attributed Scattering Centers Using a Hash Coded Database, describes the first automatic target recognizer developed for "Gotcha" circular SAR type radars. Lee Potter, associate professor of electrical and computer engineering, is Dungan’s advisor and co-author of the paper.
Kerry Dungan received his BS and MS degrees from The Ohio State University, Columbus, in 1994 and 1997, both in Electrical Engineering. He worked in industry for Harris Corporation, Lucent Technologies, and Synplicity in the area of embedded systems. In 2006, Kerry returned to Ohio State as a Ph.D. student in electrical and computer engineering. He is currently supported as a fellow in the Automatic Target Recognition Center of the Air Force Research Laboratory. His research interests include identifying vehicles in radar imagery, machine learning, and finding efficient means to implement associated algorithms.
