Research

My research primarily deals with the scattering of high frequency (HF) radiation from time-varying random rough surfaces. In addition to fundamental theoretical work, I am particularly interested in the application of HF surface wave radar (HFSWR) operating in an ocean environment. With collaborators in private industry and government agencies such as the department of Fisheries and Oceans and the Department of National Defence, there is also an interest in developing portable HF radar systems.

The signal from shore-based HFSWR can be used to

  1. detect and track targets well beyond the line-of-sight horizon.
  2. collect data which is useful in ocean surface parameter estimation. This includes measurement of significant waveheight, wind and wave directions, and vector surface currents.

Many interesting theoretical and application-oriented problems are currently being addressed. For nearly three decades, Memorial University has been a leader in this area. My research and that of my colleagues, collaborators, and students continues to build on the intensive activity in HFSWR at Memorial University. Some of the the literature may be found in my Publications List.

In conjunction with other researchers, I am currently involved in an Atlantic Innovation Fund project entitled High Frequency Radar Oceans Surface Applications (HF-ROSA). A web page under development for this project may be found at HF-ROSA.

During my graduate studies in Memorial University's Electrical EngineeringDiscipline, I was associated with members of the Remote Sensing Group at C-CORE. This affiliation continues and from time to time I co-supervise graduate students working there.
