Tim Schulz elected a Fellow in SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering


Tim Schulz, chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has been elected a Fellow in SPIE—The International Society for Optical Engineering.

He was selected in part for his research in signal processing methods for sensing and imaging. Schulz’s research programs have been supported by NSF, AFOSR, DARPA, the Space Telescope Science Institute, the Army Night Vision Laboratory and other government agencies.

He currently serves as associate editor for the Journal of the Optical Society of America A and was previously associate editor for Applied Optics and IEEE Transactions on Image Processing. Schulz has been on the Michigan Tech faculty since 1992 and has chaired his department since 1999.

SPIE Fellows are members of distinction who have made significant scientific and technical contributions in the fields of optics, photonics and imaging. Approximately 2.5 percent of the membership are Fellows.

SPIE is dedicated to advancing scientific research and engineering applications of optical, photonic, imaging and optoelectronic technologies through its meetings, education programs and publications. The society was founded in 1955 and has more than 16,000 members. Schulz will be recognized at the society’s 2007 annual meeting in San Diego, Calif.
