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.
