Alumnus Named Chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Duke

Lawrence Carin, B.S. '85, M.S., 86 and Ph.D. '89, EE, was recently named Chair of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Duke’s Pratt School of Engineering.

Larry joined Duke in 1995 as an associate professor, was promoted to the rank of full professor in 2001, and named the William H. Younger Professor of Engineering in 2003. Prior to Duke, he was on the faculty of Polytechnic University in Brooklyn, NY.

Larry’s research focuses on adaptive physics-based signal processing and his work is currently funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research, the Army Research Office (ARO), DARPA, the Department of Energy, the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and the Office of Naval Research, with a focus on applied statistical analysis of general sensor data.
He served as PI on numerous large DoD projects, including an ARO Multi University Research Initiative (MURI) dedicated to mine detection (1996-2001) and a DARPA/ARO MURI (2001-2006) dedicated to adaptive multi-model sensing.

Larry is a Fellow of the IEEE and a full member of the International Union of Radio Science Commission B for Fields and Waves. He is a co-founder of the Signal Innovations Group which employs 30 full-time people in RTP, working mostly on Department of Defense research and applications.
