• Malek Adjouadi is a Professor with the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Florida International University. He is the founding director of the Center for Advanced Technology and Education funded by the National Science Foundation since 1993. He received his BS degree (June 1978) from Oklahoma State University and his MS and PhD degrees (June 1981 and August 1985, respectively) from the University of Florida. All degrees were from Electrical Engineering. His early work on Computer Vision Techniques to Help the Blind have led him to provide testimony to the US Senate committee of Veterans Affairs on technology to help persons with visual disabilities on April of 1987. His research interests are in image and signal processing, assistive technology research to help persons with motor and visual disabilities, and neuroscience with applications to epilepsy and Alzheimer's disease.
