About Norm


Past ...

I received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in Electrical Engineering at the University of Calgary in 1976 and 1978, respectively. At the time of graduation in 1976, Pierre Trudeau was completing his third term as Canada's Prime Minister, Gerald Ford was President of the United States, and regular leaded gasoline in Calgary cost $0.45 per imperial gallon. Calgary's population in 1976 was 470,043. I wore a bell-bottomed blue pin-striped suit to my graduation.

From the time of graduation until July 1998, I have had the pleasure of working alongside Dr. Len Bruton as his full-time Research Assistant. We have together carried out research in M-D and 1-D signal processing here at the University of Calgary (1979-1983, 1985-1998), and for two years in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the University of Victoria (1984-1985). The research has led to a book chapter and more than 30 refereed journal and conference papers, listed here.

Our shared research interests include:

I am currently a Senior Instructor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. My primary responsibilities in this position are teaching at the undergraduate level, which I thoroughly enjoy.

I am also the Undergraduate Program Director for Electrical and Computer Engineering.


And just for fun ...
