Biography

 

Dr. Poularikas has been involved for many years in research related to space applications. He was a Faculty Fellow at NASA for two consecutive times, doing research on wave propagation in random media, radiowave scintillations due to ionosphere, and the effect of ionosphere on the accuracy of satellite orbit defamation. Dr. Poularikas has also been involved in image science, image detection through random media; specifically, he was involved in aero-optics research of hypervelocity vehicles. At present he is involved in random digital signal processing, spectral estimation and adaptive filtering for signal processing and system identification.
