University of Connecticut School of Engineering David F. Crouse, Ph.D.

About Me

I completed my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering at the University of Connecticut (UCONN) in July, 2011. My area of specialization is signal processing, primarily related to target tracking. I will begin working at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC in August, 2011.

In addition to Electrical Engineering, I have also studied German, receiving a Bachelor of Arts in German Studies from UCONN after spending a year abroad at the University of Heidelberg in Germany, and I studied French on the side.
