|Eric Weber, Ph.D., Iowa
Dr. Weber has a bachelor's degree from Gustavus Adolphus College and a Ph.D. from the University of Colorado. His research interests are in the areas of harmonic analysis with applications. In particular, Dr. Weber is focusing on wavelet theory, frame theory, and sampling theory. Currently, he is focusing on these theories on fractals. He is also investigating applications to signal processing such as data compression, digital watermarking, denoising, and secure communications (cryptography).
