Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Arlene Cole-Rhodes is Professor of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Morgan State University, and a Senior Member of the Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers (IEEE). She holds a B.Sc. degree in Applied Mathematics from Warwick University, England, an M. Phil. degree in Control Engineering from Cambridge University, England, and she received her Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. She has been on the faculty at Morgan State University since 1993, and prior to this she had spent two years as a Member of Technical Staff at AT&T Bell Labs, Holmdel, NJ.

Dr. Cole-Rhodes has extensive research experience focused on developing algorithms for signal processing applications. Her research has focused on multi-sensor image registration and fusion for remote-sensing and biomedical images, and also developing equalization techniques for wireless communication systems, including multiple antenna wireless systems. She was awarded a National Science Foundation POWRE grant in 2000, and she has served on review panels for the NSF CISE Directorate. She has authored or co-authored over 50 publications in international journals and conferences, she has written six book chapters and she regularly acts as a peer reviewer for articles submitted to the IEEE journals and conferences in the areas of image processing and equalization for wireless communications.

Her research projects have been funded by NASA, the National Science Foundation (NSF), Army Research Labs (ARL), and the Department of Defense, and in her research lab Dr Cole-Rhodes works with both graduate students and undergraduate students. She has mentored and directed the research of five doctoral candidates who have completed their Doctor of Engineering degree, 17 students who have received the Master of Engineering or Master of Science degree, as well as over 30 undergraduate students, who have worked in her lab as research assistants on different projects. During the academic year she regularly teaches courses at both the graduate and undergraduate levels in Signals and Systems, Discrete Systems, Control Systems, Linear Systems theory, Numerical Optimization, and Image Processing.
