Expert has taught courses in digital signal processing, neural networks, and pattern recognition for over 25 years. He has published over 100 papers in these areas and has trained over 15 PhD and 35 MS students who have performed research in these areas. His research has been supported by the National Science Foundation, NASA, and the Advanced Technology Program of the state of Texas, Mobil Research, E-Systems, and ABB Network Management. In his consulting work, he has produced application software or neural network software for Weatherford International, Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control, Abbott Labs, and Williams Pyro. Prof. Expert's neural networks have been included in a Lockheed weapon system, and have been used to estimate formation porosity in the pulsed neutron porosity (PNP) well logging tool.

Expert developed some growing/pruning software for training neural nets, for Lockheed Martin Missiles and Fire Control Expert developed neural network software for various applications for Weatherford International Expert developed algorithms and software to classify aspirations of liquid samples (as air, foam, or good) in a commercial biomedical processing system for Abbott Labs. Expert developed signal processing algorithms and software for Telluric Geophysical Services Expert developed neural network software for the pulsed neutron porosity (PNP) well logging tool for Mobil Research.

Expert may consult nationally and internationally, and is also local to the following cities: Dallas, Texas - Fort Worth, Texas - Arlington, Texas - Plano, Texas - Garland, Texas - Irving, Texas - Grand Prairie, Texas - Mesquite, Texas - Waco, Texas - Carrollton, Texas

Work History

Years Employer Title Department Responsibilities
Years: 1982 to Present Employer: Undisclosed Title: Professor Department: Department of Electrical Engineering Responsibilities: Prof. Expert teaches graduate courses such as digital signal processing, statistical signal processing, statistical pattern recognition, and neural networks. He also trains graduate students, and performs and publishes research. Expert's company, Neural Decision Lab LLC, takes part in consulting activities including the development and sale of neural network related software.
Years: 1978 to 1982 Employer: Schlumberger Well Services Title: Development Engineer Department: Engineering Responsibilities: In the Digital Sonic group, from 1978 through 1979, Prof. Expert developed discriminant functions for the detection of cased hole sonic returns. In the Nuclear magnetic logging (NML) group, from 1979 through 1982, Prof. Expert performed algorithm development for NML (now known as nuclear magnetic resonance logging). Algorithms developed included (1) anti-causal bandpass filtering, (2) repair of microphonic pulses via pattern recognition and extrapolation, and via median averaging (in the depth direction), and (3) Larmor frequency estimation.
Years: 1976 to 1978 Employer: University of Texas at Austin Title: Assistant Professor Department: Electrical Engineering Responsibilities: After Prof. Expert graduated in 1976, he taught courses such as control theory logical design, Fortran programming, and electrical engineering for non-electrical engineers.
