- Deane E. Ackers Distinguished Professor Emeritus, EECS
In 1989, Dr. Joseph Evans joined the faculty at the University of Kansas (KU), where he is now a Professor of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science. He has been involved in a variety of networking projects while at KU, ranging from the MAGIC gigabit networking testbed, the ACTS ATM Internet, and the Rapidly Deployable Radio Network projects to a collaborative effort with the KU School of Education to deliver K-12 educational resources over the Internet. Dr. Evans spent the 1996-1997 academic year on sabbatical at Cambridge University and Olivetti & Oracle Research Laboratory in Cambridge, England, working in the area of mobile computing and communications systems. In 1991 he participated in the Air Force Summer Research Program at Hanscom AFB.
Prior to joining the University of Kansas, he held a postdoctoral position in the Network Systems Research Department of AT&T Bell Laboratories in Holmdel, New Jersey, where he was involved in the design of a high performance integrated network. While at Princeton, he was awarded an AT&T Bell Laboratories Graduate Fellowship for 1984-1988; during this time, he was also a part time employee of Bell Labs, working in the field of speech processing algorithms for packet networks.
His current research interests include high speed (gigabit) networks, special-purpose computer architecture, adaptive signal processing, digital speech processing, and VLSI implementations.
