Stephen Frasier received the B.E.E. degree in 1987 from the University of Delaware, Newark and the Ph.D. degree in 1994 from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.
From 1987 to 1990 he was with SciTec, Inc., Princeton, NJ analyzing the electromagnetic and optical signatures of high-altitude rocket plumes, evaluating laser detection systems, and developing data acquisition systems supporting airborne IR sensors. In August 1990 he joined the Microwave Remote Sensing Laboratory at the University of Massachusetts. His graduate work involved the development of a phased-array imaging radar for oceanographic research applications.
Since 1994, Dr. Frasier has been employed by the University of Massachusetts as a Research Engineer, Senior Research Fellow, and currently as Associate Professor. His research interests include microwave imaging and interferometric techniques, radar oceanography, and radar meteorology. He currently leads radar research programs studying surface waves and currents in the ocean and studying winds and turbulence in the lower atmosphere.
Dr. Frasier is a member of the IEEE Geoscience & Remote Sensing Society, URSI Commission F, the American Geophysical Union, and the American Meteorological Society.
