STACY LYNNE Tantum

Stacy L. Tantum

Associate Professor of the Practice in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Stacy Tantum received the B.S.E.E. degree in Electrical Engineering and Economics from Tufts University, Medford, MA, in 1994, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering, both from Duke University, Durham, NC, in 1996 and 1998, respectively.  She was a Summer Research Assistant at SACLANT Undersea Research Center in La Spezia, Italy in 1996.

Her current research interests include statistical signal processing with application to remote sensing and ocean acoustics.

Dr. Tantum is a member of the Tau Beta Pi, Eta Kappa Nu, and Sigma Xi honor societies.
