Potter, Lee


Lee C. Potter received the B.E. degree in electrical engineering and mathematics from Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, USA, in 1984 and the Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois, Champaign, IL, USA, in 1990. Since 1991, he has been with the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, The Ohio State University, Columbus, where he is also an Investigator at the Davis Heart and Lung Research Institute. His research interests include statistical signal processing, inverse problems, detection, and estimation, with applications in radar and medical imaging. Dr. Potter is a two-time recipient of the OSU College of Engineering MacQuigg Award for Outstanding Teaching.


My expertise is in signal processing and inverse problems, with application to radar and magnetic resonance imaging.  Since 2011, I have been director of a center co-sponsored by the National Science Foundation and the Air Force Research Laboratory. During 2010-2014, I was lead investigator for a DARPA-sponsored multi-university research team developing remote sensing technologies, with emphasis on measurement strategies and processing methods to reduce data acquisition costs.  With colleagues at the Davis Heart & Lung Research Institute, I have developed optimization and machine learning strategies for highly accelerated magnetic resonance imaging of the heart and great vessels. An example is 4D flow imaging from a free-breathing five-minute scan [Pruitt et al., MRM 2020].
