Ananya Sen Gupta, PhD

Faculty Affiliate, Iowa Technology Institute;
Assistant Professor, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Ananya Sen Gupta joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering as assistant professor in 2013. Prior to joining the University of Iowa, she spent five years (2008-2012) at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution as a postdoctoral scholar and researcher working in undersea signal processing and petroleum forensics.

Professor 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. She 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.

Professor Sen Gupta is a Technical Committee member in the IEEE Ocean Engineering Society and guest editor of the IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering Special Issue “Underwater Acoustic Propagation Physics and Signal Processing Techniques for Shallow Water Acoustic Communications.” She currently leads a research team of graduate and undergraduate students.
