NJIT Professor Featured in NY Times Education Life Ad

Mathematics professor Eliza Michalopoulou is featured in an ad appearing in the New York Times Education Life section on July 22, 2012.  Michalopoulou uses mathematical modeling and signal processing to help the Navy detect submarines in coastal areas.  She studies how sounds move in the ocean and how they are affected by factors like temperature, ocean depth, seafloor composition and currents.  The end products of her work are algorithms that can be used in developing nextgeneration security and environmental monitoring systems.
