Dr. Beal received his Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Auburn University. His research uses concepts in nonlinear dynamics to innovate techniques for communication systems, compressive noise ranging systems and true random number generation in integrated circuits. As a postdoctoral researcher with the U.S. Department of Energy's Oakridge Institute for Science and Education he applied these concepts to give unique advantages to physical systems. Before becoming an Assistant Professor at UAH, Dr. Beal was a civil servant researcher with the U.S. Army RDECOM (now Futures Command CCDC) Charles M. Bowden Laboratory at Redstone Arsenal. This work supported early basic and applied research. His current research interests highlight the intersection of nonlinear dynamics and engineering applications to support advances in signal processing, sensing, security and machine learning.
