Associate Professor,
Electrical and Computer Engineering Department

Professor Kie B. Eom was born in Seoul, Korea in 1954. He received the B.S.E.E. degree from Sogang University, the M.S. degree in electrical engineering from Korea Advanced Institute of Science in 1978, and Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University in 1986. He is currently an Associate Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the George Washington University, Washington, D.C.
From 1986 to 1989, he was an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY. Prof. Eom's current research interests include statistical image models, digital signal and image processing, texture analysis and synthesis, radar signal processing, automatic target recognition, computer vision, pattern recognition, and artificial intelligence. He authored or coauthored more than 70 refereed research publications, including three book chapters. He is listed in "Who's Who in Science and Engineering," "Who's Who in America," "Who's Who in the World," and was a recipient of grants from National Science Foundation, Office of Naval Research, and Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation. He has been a consultant to Kaman Science Corporation, Enerlog Systems and U.S. Patent Office. He received the best paper award from IEEE Syracuse section in 1989. Dr. Eom is a senior member of the IEEE Computer Society. He is also a member of Sigma Xi, Tau Beta Pi, and Eta Kappa Nu.
