Paul J. Gendron received his PhD from Worcester Polytechnic Institute, his MS from Viginia Tech and his BS from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, all in Electrical Engineering.  His work is broad in the field of statistical signal processing, detection and estimation theory.  His contributions range from seismic event detection and classification to adaptive filtering and low probability of detection acoustic communications.  He was with the Naval Research Laboratory from 2000 to 2007 and with the Spawar Systems Center Pacific from 2008 to 2012.  In 2000 he was the recipient of an Office of Naval Research research fellowship award for his work with the Acoustic Division at the Naval Research Laboratory.  In 2006 he served as an Office of Naval Research Visiting Scientist at DRDC-Atlantic, Canada.  Dr. Gendron presently conducts research for the Office of Naval Research related to the discover and invention of enabling technologies for undersea surveillance.
