Eric Justh received his Ph.D. from the University of Maryland, College Park, in 1998, where he now works as an Assistant Research Scientist in the Institute for Systems Research. Dr. Justh's Ph.D. work was in the area of pattern-forming systems, and his dissertation presented a Lyapunov functional for a particular activator-inhibitor system. During 1999 and 2000, Dr. Justh divided his time as a post-doc between the Institute for Systems Research and the Intelligent Optics Laboratory at the Army Research Laboratory in Adelphi, MD, working on the high-resolution adaptive optics problem. Dr. Justh also has a long-standing collaboration with the Solid State Devices branch at the Naval Research Laboratory, currently through a subcontract with SFA, Inc., Largo, Maryland. The focus of this collaboration is high-speed analog CMOS circuits, including adaptive filter circuits and continuous wavelet transform circuits. The common theme in these seemingly diverse areas of research is the use of dynamical systems ideas in the design of control systems incorporating large numbers of sensors and actuators.
