Dr. Elisa Barney Smith joined the faculty at Boise State University in September
1999. She received a B.S. in Computer Science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
(RPI), Troy, NY. She then received the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical, Computer and
Systems Engineering in 1989 and 1998, respectively, also from RPI. From 1989 to 1993 she
worked as an engineer at the Naval Undersea Warfare Center in New London, CT. In 1993,
she had a research internship at the NATO SACLANT Centre in LaSpezia, Italy. Her work at
both NUWC and SACLANT Centre involved designing automatic target classification
algorithms and systems that utilize passive acoustic data. Dr. Barney Smith's
current research is in image processing and pattern recognition, with a primary focus on
document image analysis.
