About Russell C. Hardie

I am currently a Professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Dayton, holding a joint appointment with the University's Electro-Optics program. Before coming to UD in 1993, I was a senior scientist at Earth Satellite Corp. (now MDA Federal) in Maryland.
My research interests include a wide range of topics in the area of digital signal and image processing. My focus has been in signal and image restoration and enhancement. This includes developing innovative algorithms for overcoming limitations of non-ideal sensors through post-processing. I am also active in pattern recognition, hyperspectral image processing, and medical image processing. Hyperspectral image processing work includes anomaly detection, change detection, material identification, and image fusion. The medical image processing research has focused on the detection, segmentation, and analysis of pulmonary nodules from computed tomography images and chest radiographs.
