TRANSLATING ADVANCED RESEARCH INTO THE TECHNOLOGIES OF TOMORROW The Bernard M. Gordon Center for Subsurface Sensing and Imaging Systems is a multi-university National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center (NSF-ERC) founded in 2000. Its mission is to develop new technologies to detect hidden objects and to use those technologies to meet realworld subsurface challenges in areas as diverse as noninvasive breast cancer detection and underground pollution assessment.
The center's multidisciplinary approach combines expertise in wave physics (photonics, ultrasonics, electromagnetics), multisensor fusion, image processing, and 3D CAT-scan-like reconstruction and visualization. The Gordon Center operates... read more >>
Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering
Prof. David Castañón received his B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Tulane University in 1971, and his Ph.D. degree in Applied Mathematics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1976. From 1976 to 1981, he was a research associate with the Laboratory for Information and Decision Systems at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, MA. From 1982-1990, he was Chief Scientist at Alphatech, Inc. in Burlington, MA. He joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Boston University, Boston, MA in 1990, where is currently professor and served as department Chair in 2007. Prof. Castañón is Associate Director of the National Science Foundation Center for Subsurface Sensing and Imaging, co-Director of Boston University's Center for Information and Systems Engineering and a member of the Air Force's Scientific Advisory Board. He is also a member of the IEEE Control System Society's Board of Governors, and has served as President of the IEEE Control Systems in 2008. His research interests include stochastic control, optimization, detection and inverse problems with applications to defense, medical diagnosis and homeland security.
