Several students from the group presented their research at Northeast Regional Acoustics Symposium held at UNH in April.

Tired but happy after a busy poster session.

SPG made a trip to the outdoor rink in Providence for a night of ice skating on February 6.   A few hearty alums joined us for winter fun.

Four members of the group presented at the IEEE Underwater Acoustic Signal Processing Workshop in Exeter RI from 11-13 October 2023.   Congrats to Savas, David, Chris and CJ on great talks!  While we were at the workshop, we had a chance to take some academic family photos.   First, we gathered all of the current members and alumni from SPG, along with their students as well.

We also gathered a larger group from the workshop who can all trace their academic family tree to the MIT Digital Signal Processing Group of the 1990s.  All 19 people in this photo are academic descendants of either Alan Oppenheim or Arthur Baggeroer – roughly 1/3 of the workshop participants.  It was a great workshop sharing research, meals and old stories.

Our group meeting last week was a game of mini golf – a great way to enjoy the summer weather.  Congrats to Brandon, who is this year’s SPG mini golf champion.  Brandon also did a great job analyzing the “data” created by our scores (see figure below)
