The School of Electrical and Computer Engineering
James McClellan – Professor
Dr. James H. McClellan received the B.S. degree in Electrical
Engineering from Louisiana State University in 1969 and the M.S. and
Ph.D. degrees from Rice University in 1972 and 1973, respectively. During
1973-4 he was a member of the research staff at
M.I.T.’s Lincoln Laboratory. He then became a
professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
Department at M.I.T. In 1982, he joined Schlumberger Well Services where
he worked on the application of 2-D spectral estimation to the
processing of dispersive sonic waves, and the implementation of signal
processing algorithms for dedicated high-speed array processors. He
has been at Georgia Tech since 1987. Prof. McClellan is a Fellow
of the IEEE and he received the ASSP Technical Achievement Award in
1987, and then the Signal Processing Society Award in 1996.
Prof. McClellan is active in curriculum development for undergraduate
education. He is a co-author of the books
Number Theory in Digital Signal Processing,
Computer-Based Exercises for Signal Processing, and
DSP First: A Multimedia Approach.
Prof. McClellan’s current research interests are in two areas
of digital signal processing: algorithms for sensor array
processing, and computer software for digital signal processing
design. He is also interested in theoretical methods for spectrum
analysis, time-frequency representation of signals, multi-dimensional
signal processing, and spatial array processing. These extend to
applications in radar and geophysics.
