Dr. Kozaitis is currently a professor and Department Head in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. He worked for General Motors Research Laboratory, Wayne State University, and Digital Optics Inc. before coming to Florida Tech. From 1988 - 1997, he spent summers at the U.S. Air Force Photonics Center at Rome Laboratory performing research on optical processing. He also spent the summers of 2000 and 2001 at NASA, Kennedy Space Center, FL developing the groundwork for tracking launch vehicles with satellites. He is on the program committee of the Technical Committee on Pattern Recognition of IASTED, the advisory board of Journal of Engineering Research, the editorial board of Journal of Signal and Image Processing, and the board of trustees of the Kurdistan University of Science and Technology. He served as chairman of SPIE and IASTED conferences and as a reviewer for a wide variety of journals, books, conferences, and research programs. He is a member of IEEE, Sigma Xi, SPIE, and Tau Beta Pi and received the outstanding faculty service award at Wayne State University.
