Research Topics

  • Signal processing
  • Pattern recognition
  • Geometric computational techniques 

Professor Ananya Sen Gupta’s research interests lie in signal processing, pattern recognition, and knowledge discovery, with an emphasis on applications to coastal environments and the Earth’s Van Allen radiation belts.

Prof. Sen Gupta seeks to develop geometric computational techniques that enable sophisticated representation, localization, tracking, and classification of environmental processes. Her algorithms have been applied to shallow water acoustic communications, fingerprinting oil spills, and sonar target recognition in high-clutter coastal environments, as well as to tracking high-energy plasmospheric events on Earth and Mars.

The research carried out by Prof. Sen Gupta and her students has attracted multiple awards at the national and state level, including the prestigious National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship Award (Bernice Kubicek, PhD candidate), several Iowa Space Grant Consortium (ISGC) awards, and the University of Iowa's Career Kudos mentoring award.

A University of Iowa PhD candidate working as a research assistant at the Iowa Technology Institute has been selected for the National Defense Science and Engineering (NDSEG) Fellowship Program. Bernice Kubicek was awarded this fellowship to continue work born out of her time with the Ananya Sen Gupta Research Group. She has conducted research on sonar autonomous target recognition through the development of feature extraction algorithms that aim to improve the classification and recognition of objects deep underwater.
